Why I didn't think of this as punk...

I do not know (yeah. I know I've already posted one "punk knit" post, but wanted to show this off to everyone)



I knit this up a little over a year ago. Although it looks a little unassuming (aside from the gourgeous color), it's origins could be considered quite punk. The yarn is my own hand spun, spun while riding the Metro in Washington, DC where the shawlette was also knit on the rush hour commute. You should have seen the looks I got while spinning (and knitting) in the doorways of the train cars!

That is amazing - I am still trying to visualize spinning while commuting - so I know why you got those looks... Great job!!

Spinning on the metro?! I got crazy looks when all I was doing was knitting a pair of socks. It would be nice to have public transportation like that again, more time to knit!

That is amazing! You probably were a nice diversion for the usual book/newspaper readers and dazed starers.
