My knitting time is much depleted these days. I usually knit in the evenings whilst watching TV but now that I’m working full time again my evenings are largely taken up with other things (work calls, surfing the net and sometimes even blogging). So knitting has taken a back seat.
I think part of the reason why I’m knitting less at the moment is because it’s so hot. Even when I was living in the UK I found that I knit at lot less in spring and summer. One of the first signs of autumn was my itch to pick up the needles again.
Apart from cold weather there are a few other things that make my perfect knitting environment: a good film, a sofa to spread out on and a straight-forward project that doesn’t require too much thought. Over the years I’ve learnt that nothing causes knitting mistakes faster than alcohol and a subtitled film – although weirdly it can be feel just as satisfying if I spend the evening knitting and unpicking. I think it’s the process of actually doing something.
When do you knit or crochet?
