I Sit in the Stands and People Look at me Like I'm Crazy

So I'm sitting at a soccer game this evening and this lady working as security keeps looking at me like I'm crazy.
Seriously, don't you knit at sporting events?
Even in inclement weather?
I do.
What's a little rain to some socks?
They're going to be washed anyway.
Perhaps that is not what people are staring at, perhaps they are looking at me knitting.
I've gotten to the point where I have not only knitting ADD, but I can't sit still and not be working on something.
So we went to SN2's soccer game this evening, and naturally I brought along my knitting since I have a sock to work on.
And yes it was raining, but I managed to get several inches done on the leg.
His team won 2-1 in a game that was very dirty, and I don't mean because of the mud.
A lot of tackling from behind, and one of the players punched a guy from our team.
Did the ref see any of this?
He must have been too busy looking at the crazy lady sitting in the stands knitting in the rain.

I think you were perfectly normal. The ref was probably just admiring your technique!

Doesn't everybody knit in public? I bring my knitting with me most of the time. My husband gets sort of embarassed, but he'll get over it. Nothing better than knitting while you are waiting on the kids.

I'm a public crocheter. I make so much progress on my projects during the kids sports seasons, its amazing. I also knit at the beach, but choose a cotton yarn instead. Adjusting for the seasons is important in outside yarn work.
