Karaoke Crochet?

I went out to the bar this weekend for karaoke night. Aside from the
really old hill-billy singing "Baby Got Back" I saw the strangest
thing. Well maybe it wasn't really that strange but it caught me by

I saw a woman crocheting – in the bar. Of course I was completely
without camera to capture the event – not even the craptasic cell
phone camera. I knit in public all the time so I don't know why I

Make that "I'd definitely fall off my chair..." Damn typos!
