Knitting takes you anywhere you need to be. 2kcbwday7

I am a project whore. There's no denying or hiding from that one. I have too many WIPS at any one time and probably have ten more in mind. I blame the fact that I knit everywhere so it is important to have projects to suit every possible occasion. Just for an idea of what I mean I've knit in the following places:

At Knit Night
  •  trains (both subway and cross country), planes, (and yes,) auto mobiles. 
  • Doctor's and dentist's offices, and at the mechanic. 
  • In many coffee shops and pubs. 
  • In the park and around the campfire. (I love the last one, but it's important to remember everything will smell like smoke.)
  •  I knit with friends on their back decks or sofas or at one of our favourite yarn stores. 
  • I firmly believe in having "Film Festival" socks as they keep me sane while in the super long lines.
  •  I've knit across Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and P.E.I. I've made socks on the train to Montreal and while sitting with my friends watching British television in a rather cosy Hong Kong flat.
  •  A half season of Fringe accompanied the production of my Lady Eleanor and Dr.Who is currently occupying my knitting time. (I'm slowly warming up to David Tennant.).

Knitting for me is a way to unwind after a long day at work and helps me to enjoy movies and TV a lot more.  It keeps me sane and calm.  It allows me to focus my energy, and I can sit still when I knit.  The bottom line is my knitting is whatever I need it to be whenever it need it.  Now, I just have to figure out how to knit while I'm on the treadmill and I'm set.


  1. Knitting while working out would make going to the gym so much easier, I think I need to figure that one out too XD

  2. I knit in the car when my son is not accompanying us. I like knitting on long trips..

  3. I love your blog! Funny, and I totally get the having a dozen projects going at the same time. I knit between flight points too...

  4. I like to knit while watching Dr Who too.

  5. I always have lots of projects too! Those all sound like lovely places to knit! :D

  6. Same here - I tend to have projects for every occasion and mood - work, lunch, weekday, travel, queue.

    I wish I could knit while walking! Or eating, that would save me a lot of time. Mind you I'm known to work on small wips in the bathtub = double pleasure :o)
