Your knitting and crochet time.

Welcome to the last day of the 2nd Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week. I have had a great time writing up all these posts. And, it's been fun writing about some different things on the ol' blog. :)

This last post is all about 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."

Ah, my knitting time. How I love it so.

I am pretty lucky. I have kind of a lot of knitting time. I have an awesome work schedule (6am-2:30pm, I know many of you wince at the idea of starting work at 6am, but I love love love it!). I get home by 3:00 or so. Sometimes (especially in the winter) I take a little nap. Otherwise, I do a little housework, maybe throw in a load of laundry, and then park my ass on the couch. And, I knit.

Lately, I have been knitting while watching Ellen (she is my new after work or fav) or Oprah. I get caught up on Dancing with the Stars or Biggest Loser or (in the summer) So You Think You Can Dance.

Once Alex gets home from work, I will make dinner, and then after dinner we usually have shows we watch together (American Idol, The Office, Modern Family). Yep, I knit through all of that too.

So, you are thinking - holy sh*t, Jen, you sure do watch a lot of tv. My answer, why yes, yes I do. :)

Every night isn't like this though. I teach/work at a yarn shop, I go out and knit with my knitting buds, and I have taken a recent liking to Zumba, so I go to that 2-3/week.

I will pretty much knit in every spare moment I have. In the passenger seat of the car, while waiting at a doctor's office, my lunch break, anywhere. :)

How about you? How do you get your crafty time in?
Thanks again for following along in a week's worth of blogging. Hope you enjoyed it!

Happy knitting! :)


  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!

    I loved your post. You are my kind of gal as others think I'm nuts to knit in the car while stopped in traffic. All those tv programs you mention, yup! that's me also.

    Some people go to therapy....me, I knit for relaxation!

  2. I watch a lot of TV too and I feel no shame, my husband and I enjoy it so why not?!
