Do you knit during every opportunity? Or are you more of a TV/movie knitter? Maybe while commuting to work and back, or a lunch time knitter.
Most knitters will knit at any opportunity. I love to knit at lunch, it gives me a break during the stressful day to get some click-click-click in. Even if I can only knit one row in a little meditative break helps.
Of course I love to knit during a movie. We don’t have cable anymore, so I can put on Netflix and go through several episodes of a show and keep knitting.
I also like to listen to my iPod, whether it is music, audio book or a podcast, like TV, I need some simple knitting or I’ll be frogging before I know it.. Likewise for sporting events! Woops! Frog all of the way back to where I started, *grin*
If knitting while drinking, I’ve experienced several things, either, I don’t drink my drink, due to being so engrossed in my knitting, and then it is warm and watery. Or drunk knitting, never a good idea, although while knitting it may seem that way. Next day usually involves a “what the heck??”
I’m a car knitter, I always have something to knit while going on a trip, motion sickness doesn’t bother me, although I know it can be a problem for some. I did pull up to a stoplight once and see a women knitting, in the drivers seat, while at the light. I honked and gave her a thumbs up, It drives me crazy to have to drive hours in the car and not be able to knit, if only I could knit and drive at the same time. All of that wasted knitting time!
Vacation knitter? Yes! I try and plan a vacation project, and make sure I have everything I need, I like to be able to look at a knitted item and remember the vacation we were on when I was knitting it.
Maybe the best time to knit is in total silence. Just the gentle clicking of my knitting needles as the yarn lightly glides over and under them. It is a sacred time when no one makes demands of me, my mental agility is not taxed, and I can simply stay grounded in the present moment, and breathe.
When do you like to knit?
