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! :)
