I never used to be a closet knitter. As a matter of fact, I used to knit in public every chance I got - in front of friends, on the train to work etc. But let's face it, there's only so many Nanna jokes that a person can take, and apparently I look kind of scary when I knit, angrily jabbing sharp pointy needles into the poor harmless little wool (although I find the whole knitting thing quite soothing and calming).
So I've made my decision. I'm going back into the closet as a knitter, with only you in the blogosphere (and maybe a few select others) to know the true extent of my knitting addiction.
