The Yarn Harlot excerpt from "All Wound Up":

Things that non-knitters say to me and what I would like to say back (but never will because I am a good person) 
Scene:Me, knitting. Non-knitter approaches and says, "Wow, are you knitting?"
What I Would Like To Say: Nope, doesn't it look like it though? Really, this is a careful illusion made possible through my many years of studying enchantment and magic, In reality, I'm just sitting around like everyone else, but I make it appear as though I'm knitting to create a feeling of coziness, make me look smart, and give me a way to meet people Hi!
What I Actually Said: Yes
