Knitting and Crochet Blog Week Day 7! 2KCBWDAY7

Your knitting and crochet time.

Write about your typical crafting time. When it is that you are likely to craft – alone or in more social environments, when watching TV or whilst taking bus journeys. What items do you like to surround yourself with whilst you twirl your hook like a majorette’s baton or work those needles like a skilled set of samurai swords. Do you always have snacks to hand, or are you a strictly ‘no crumbs near my yarn!’ kind of knitter.

The best way to start today’s post is to freely admit that the biggest fear I have is to be bored…
Bearing this in mind (and the fact that I am a “do 5 things at once kinda gal”), you can see why I tend to knit/crochet everywheeeerrrreee…

Yes, I am the person that knits in church, waiting in the queue at the grocery store, crochets on the plane, Gautrain, at the kids school concerts, in my car when stuck in a traffic jam…everywhere that doesn’t involve a life threatening situation.

However, because time is precious , I don’t just knit or crochet…I have to listen to an audiobook (folks, Audible.com….go there! Your life will change…) while knitting. This means that when at home, I tend to spend most of my knitting time in the kitchen table area (you know, we have a perfectly good dining room, but we never eat there…yup, we eat in the kitchen). This is where my computer is s et up (Gerry also has all his techo gadgets set up here…), so it makes for perfect together time as well…we alternate between listening to an audiobook and listening to a conference (medical) talk etc.

That’s why I have a little shelf with all my odds and ends … everything I need close at hand…

I also always carry a ready to go bag in my car, so that no matter what happens, I can do something with my hands…I’ve often been stuck at a place where I didn’t expect to be stuck at, and want to go ballistic if I can’t do some knitting and crocheting… time wasting is the biggest crime 🙁

So…in a nutshell, the crazy lady with the knitting bag, yes, the one with the kitchen sink in her car, yes, that’s me! Say Hi! when you next run into me 🙂
