I recently had my first post-lockdown ride on the New York City subway, and it was good. Miraculously, my long-languishing MetroCard had not expired, and I hopped right on the C train like old times.
Riding on public transportation means knitting on public transportation. Of all the stories of people being noticed while knitting on the subway, Louis Boria’s is my favorite. He tells the story in his TEDx Talk, linked above, which is coming up on its second anniversary.
Knitting on the subway can change your life—or, in Louis’s case, speed up destiny, as I believe he would be the shining light of the New York knitting community he is, even without the social media boost he got that day.
I can’t wait to bump into him on the train.
