I went to the WW meeting (yes, really need to, didn't go for way too long), and did some knitting in public there. Got loads of admiring stares, and smiles, felt really really good!
And, for the sake of the "timing" question on knittyboard, I "timed", or rather: I counted the number of rounds I got done. So here goes: I did 18 rounds of 50 stitches on my modified voodoo wrist warmers in the 45 minutes of the meeting, including the cast on. I really like the look of the spiraling rib, and I really like the k3 p2 rib, too. (900 stitches in 45 minutes)
