Things to do when your life isn’t exciting enough

If you thought just plain knitting in public was subversive and hilarious, clearly you’re still thinking like a person who wears pants. I’d thought knitting in public was awesome, but I see now the error of my mistake. We should be pantsless.

I know a group did this in Toronto as well as New York (above), but dang. That’d be one memorable subway ride, for sure.

Knitting-wise, I’ve got lots on the go but nothing finished, and my bloggable thoughts seem to be at a low this week. Here’s hoping some FOs will come into the play next week! In the mean time, keep the knitting close by and thank goodness the weekend’s here soon.


  1. Wow. That looks…cold.
    Also, I can’t help but wonder – since sexual harassment is so commonplace on the NY subway, did the pantsless women experience more or less groping than usual?

  2. That’s hilarious!!! šŸ™‚

  3. cold day for it, that’s for sure!!

  4. is it just me, or is one of the pants-less women knitting?!?!!

    omg she is! i can’t believe i missed that the first time!

    ok, this just got even more funny than it was before.

  5. The thing is not to make eye contact, especially when you’re on a train from midtown to Brooklyn, after midnight, and the guy is only one not wearing pants. And no, he wasn’t knitting. Gotta love NYC.

  6. Everyone had their posh knickers on! Love the red knickers and pink wellies* combination at around 1:50.

    *Wikipedia reliably informs me Wellies (aka wellington boots) are called Rubber Boots in North America.

  7. Thank you, that was fabulous. I love the ‘other’ people’s expressions and I did see knitting!!

  8. So funny. I love the expression of the clothed rider with the hoodie. Didn’t know a mouth could stay open that long.

  9. I admire these people every year for their cavalier attitude towards subway germs.

    This is hilarious! How many times did I ride the Go bus and subway to get down to UofT? Love this.

    My only query is this: where are the Big Girls and Big Boys?
