What A Rube!

A Rube - an uneducated person who is usually from the country
              - an awkward unsophisticated person

That's me.  
 I mean, I try.  I get out.  I go to knitting events.  I dress nicely.  But when I read Marie's blog this morning about her DKC (Downtown Knit Collective) evening in Toronto with so many of the world's well known knitting stars on stage,  I realized my knitting adventures could possibly  probably do define me as a Rube.

Beaten, but not out, I read Lyn's blog.  Lyn comes from Australia and travels lots.  Take a look at her shoes.  Mine come from Winners.   Rube.
 
There is no cure for this feeling of Rube-ness, other than to bury myself in my knitting.  I am off to do just that.  Have a good weekend everyone.

And I bet they don't have country views and calm and quiet. Can't trade that in for celebrities.

Rube? Think New Mexico! And proud of it! Shoes? Stylish but my feet hurt looking at them....ok, here's the ultimate in rube-ness: last night I was so exhausted from the 4 year old's visit I had to apologize for not having the energy to look for shoes. I chose the flip flops at the door instead for choir practice! Rube!
