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*


  1. My dad teased me when I started knitting that I needed a cat and a rocking chair, and when I knit he always asks if I need a cup of tea.. XD

  2. TV and yarn go hand in hand - I swear! :)

  3. My best friend just got addicted to House, so I knit over there quite a bit.

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one that knits while watching TV. I feel like I'm wasting time if my hands are idle even w/the TV on. You watch some great shows. House makes me laugh and love Grey's altho this year's lead to the season finale was a bit too predictable.

  5. Mmmm Hugh Laurie....*drool*

  6. So, it looks like House is fairly popular with knitters then *laughs*

    @Kepanie - I'm the same, I feel like I should be doing something while watching TV, good thing we knit, huh :)

    @AC - tell me about it ;)

    @pandabearofdoom - does it make me really old if I think that a rocking chair would be an excellent addition to my knitting?!


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
