When do I do the most knitting?

Today's topic: "Your 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 to hand, or are you a strictly ‘no crumbs near my yarn!’ kind of knitter."

Ok, I think this will be a picture-free post! I definitely do most of my knitting during the weekends. I'm usually too tired to even pick up the knitting from the bag when I get home from work, some days I can make a row or two but more often I don't. So during the weekends I sit in my corner of the couch with either the TV on or an audio book on the mp3-player to keep me company. I have actually gotten so obsessed with knitting that I find it hard to watch TV any more without knitting!

If I have a slow day at work, I can also get some knitting done during the day. Usually, afternoons are a bit slower for us, and one time I actually managed to knit at least half a sock one Friday afternoon! I do prefer to have a more mindless project at work though, so I'm able to put it down immediately if a patient comes along. So my lace knitting is suffering quite a bit this year!

Ok, Knitting and Crochet blog week is now officially over! I'm quite proud of myself that I've taken the time to actually post every day this week, and not just fall down dead on the couch every evening. I do love writing on the blog, but with both being dead tired and having less kntting time to actually make a topic from, I find that I post more and more seldom. I think I'll try to do better!

I would LOVE to find a job I could knit during the day. :) Sounds like you find plenty of productive time.

I would also love permission to knit at work!

I TOTALLY agree about the television thing. I absolutely cannot watch television without knitting. And it's gotten to the point where I have a hard time not knitting in the movie theater or (more embarrassingly) at live performances (concerts, ballets, operas).
