Day Seven (Sunday 17th May): Your Time, Your Place.
Where and how do you take time out to knit and/or crochet? Maybe you don’t take time out at all and instead have your needles twirling as you try to juggle a multitude of other tasks with no ‘spare’ time to think of. Maybe you enjoy nothing more than to crochet whilst winding down from a yoga session, chatting with some friends in a nearby cafe.
Whether social or solitary, tell readers about your crafting time and space, and where you either most enjoy (or can simply find a few snatched moments) to turn yarn into something even more beautiful.
I have knit a lot of places in the past few years. I’ve knit at home in my bed, my most favorite place to knit. I can often be founding knitting with my knitting group at either Whole Foods or the bakery. I’ve knit in hospitals, ERs, doctor’s offices, my parent’s house, the car and recently I knit at the hospice center where my father was a patient. I spent many hours sitting in his room knitting my Laurelhurst socks. I cast the cuff on the first day we were there. That is likely why I missed half of the cuff directions. My attention was not on my knitting. As the sock progressed, the days passed and my father slipped further from us. By the time I had reached the toe of the first sock he was gone.
It’s surprising how life can get tangled up with our projects. I haven’t been able to wear the socks. Between the arrival of warmer weather and the fact that I’m just not ready to wear them they have sat on my dresser where I can see them every day.
