Yesterday, it came full circle, you might say. I was sitting in my office when a relatively new employee who works at a different location came in and said, “I have a really odd question for you. Do you any knitting I could borrow while I am in a meeting here?” She had seen me knitting at a staff meeting last month and that apparently clued her in that knitting at meetings was acceptable. Now remember the first truth above. In spite of the fact that I had no reason to bring knitting to work, I actually had three different projects with me for her to choose from. Unfortunately none of them was just stockinette or garter. But I handed over my brioche stitch sock gladly. When she brought it back later, not that much was added and it is not perfectly in line with what I knit before and after, but I did not rip it out and re-do because it every time I wear that sock in the future, it will be a great memory for me.
