Bit of ribbing

Snippets from last night’s Stitch N Bitch at the National Theatre.

On seeing a group of knitters in the Long Bar..

Man: “Are you a mother’s circle?”
SNB: “No, we are knitting circle”.
Man: rather perplexed. “Are you a mother’s group?”

Seemed like he was expecting an affirmative regardless what the answer was. In which case, I for one would like to apologise for our inability as knitters (regardless of gender) to simultaneously fall pregnant while holding knitting needles because everyone knows that anyone who knits in public in large groups must surely be making baby booties for their bun in the oven.
