Where do you like to indulge in your craft? Is your favourite arm chair your little knitting cubby area, or do you prefer to ‘knit in public’? Do you like to crochet in the great outdoors, perhaps, or knit in the bath, or at the pub?
I have knit in a variety of places. Planes, trains and automobiles. Restaurants (one was quite nice – we sat in the lounge / bar area for a weekly SNB – it was the only place open on a Monday night! The bartender was great and would turn up the lights so we could see!), hotels, Broadway plays, my local hardware store, coffee shops, hospitals (as a patient in labor and waiting while my dad was a patient), waiting rooms, parks… I am not nervous in the least about pulling out my knitting and working on a few stitches anywhere. I wish I could knit a bit easier while outside with Lorelai, but she still needs an extra hand and a close eye – she’s coordinated, but often wobbly and usually sticky, so that’s not a great combination. I tend to have 2 favorite places to knit. One is on the couch at home – it’s the end spot, next to a lamp and side table. I knit in that spot every morning while watching Elmo’s World with Lorelai and each evening with Dan. I know he gets annoyed that I always have a light on, but I’m at the point now where I can no longer sit still without my knitting in my hands. My second spot to do most of my knitting is at a table with the ladies of SnB – the same one Wife, Mom, Knitter shared – I’m actually in that photo too, on the right, in the brown sweater!
