At work my co-workers are all polite and ask what I am working on. Even when I show photos or explain they usually just say 'oh that's nice' or make some comment about how they could never do that or don't have the patience for stuff like that.
They do have a fascination with muscle memory when I sit and crochet without looking at a pattern or really even watching what I am doing. Last week we had a whole conversation about muscle memory. I have also made and given them a few small projects.
Whenever we go out in the car I take the current project, I have sat at the table while waiting for the waitress crocheting and knitting, in the drive-trough at the bank or pharmacy, in a play or band program for the kids, while visiting my family and just about anywhere.
I also have a fascination with the appearance of needlework on tv and film. I make my husband pause what we are watching so I can study the frame to determine whether the actor is actually working the project or simply holding someone's needles or hooks.
