My Knitting Time 2KCBWDAY7
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.
Hmmm, well my typical craft time generally involves my sofa, my TV and a whole lot of nothing else *laughs*
I like to curl up with my needles and yarn, stick on a DVD (or catch up on my Sky+) and get stuck in. The DVD or TV I watch depends on whether or not I'm with boyfriend at the time. If it's the two of us, it'll be a TV series we're watching together, or some kind of film I don't need to pay much attention to.
Most of my recent knitting has been to the tune of seasons 1 to 6 of:
Mmmmmm, I do love me some House ;) Other things I watch are:
Apart from the yarn and the TV, I don't think there's any particular ritual or activity that makes up my knitting time (apart from forgetting to eat now and then when I'm enjoying myself *ooops face*). If I'm at a particularly tricky bit, or if I just need to concentrate, then I do tend to pause what I'm watching so as not to be distracted. I also stick to things I've seen before until I'm sure of myself in the pattern, then catch up on new shows when I'm settled.
I knit on the train on the odd occasions that I actually catch one (far less often than I used to). Last time I did, the people around me looked at me like I was an alien *laughs* In fact, I'm planning my train knitting for this weekend (for that to make any sense, I should mention that this is a pre-scheduled post, due to the fact that I'll be away... Hence the train *wonders if that actually did make any more sense*)
So, that's about as exciting as it gets really... No wonder my mum worries that I'm turning into a boring old lady *fond smile*
