I Want to Knit
Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Time for the next Question of the Week:
We are all creatures of habit and when it comes to sitting down to knit, it's no different…
What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit?
My favorite place to knit is in front of the TV. Ideally I'll have a stack of VHS tapes of the shows I'd recorded in the last little while, which would give me a few hours of only the shows I want to see. I knit without looking, so I get restless if I have nothing to distract my eyes. Also, this will sound strange because knitting requires varying degrees of concentration depending on the project, but I need the TV (or at least my iPod) to keep my brain occupied while I knit.

What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting?
Um...light? I have knit in the dark, but it didn't turn out pretty. Seriously, I think the only thing I'd need besides my yarn, needles and pattern, would be my notions caddy. I have a small 2-level makeup bag that holds everything I need in a compact, easily portable little bundle. Everything is in there, from scissors and sewing needles to spare buttons, pens, pencils, a highlighter, measuring tape, needle gauge, stitch markers, a scale, reinforcing thread, elastic thread, waste yarn, stitch holders and more I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Beyond that I just need a comfortable seat, although I have knit while walking many times. I'd love to be able to knit while lying down, but it isn't worth the strain on my arms.

    We recently got DVR and have sworn off VHS forever. It totally rocks for knitting and being up at all hours with the baby.

    I still need to look at my knitting, but I do like to listen/watch TV at the same time.
