Day 7: My 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 at hand, or are you a strictly ‘no crumbs near my yarn!’ kind of knitter.

Well, I will start off by saying that I don't typically get to knit everyday...although I'd like to. A big reason why I knit is because for me, it is often a stress reliever. Knowing that, it makes sense that after a long day, I would want to knit when I get home or before bedtime. But sometimes if, for example, I'm working on a pattern that takes a bit of brain power, I am just too tired to work on it and opt for some TV time instead. :) With that being said, here are some answers to today's posting topics...
  • I do enjoy knitting alone (like I said, to relieve some stress)...but I also enjoy social knitting as well. When I lived in Monterey, I belonged to a knitting/crocheting circle and we met at various restaurants around town. It was something I always looked forward to, because we would get together and talk about all kinds of things...what was going on in our lives, or swoon over the Sunshine Yarns update that week. :) I loved it! And now that I'm in Charlotte, I have also started going to a knitting group everyday Sunday, put on by a LYS closeby. For me right now, it's a great chance to get out of my apt. and meet new people, while getting to practice my hobby and learn new things!
  • I...
    • DO take my yarn on travel trips (whether in the car, as a passenger of course, or flying)
    • DO knit while in line for a *special* midnight movie premier ( know I'm talking about Eclipse here!)
    • DON'T knit while in line for the grocery store...I have read about how people do this, but honestly, I'm never in line for that long. I feel as though I would no more get my knitting out and ready, and it'd be my turn to check-out.
  • Other things I will do while knitting:
    • Talk on the phone
    • Watch TV
    • Watch a movie I've seen a million times, because then I really don't have to pay attention :P
  •  Things I will consider having around me when I knit:
    • Wine :)
    • Big cup of tea
*Well, hope you enjoyed my Knitting & Crochet Blog Week! :) Tune in next year!!

It sounds so delightful. and mini skeins- take the squooshiness of yarn and make it miniature it's like a baby frolicking in a tub of yarn. So cute!
