Second Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week -day Seven
Wow, last day this was rather fun. I'll have to see what the topics are for next year.
What is my typical crafting time? Anytime, anywhere. When I was at Western I always had a knitting project in my backpack. Some days it was hard to fit in the history textbooks :) These days I always have a handful of projects on the go so I can always have a project to suit the occasion. For example, we've had a lot of road/bridge construction in the County for the last few years, so I've taken to carrying a pair of socks to work on while stopped waiting . I also bring knitting to appointments, like on Monday. Knitting made OVFC board meetings a lot less boring too. The car is the best place to get knitting done and I'm lucky since I rarely have to do the driving. I also do a lot of knitting in the evening watching tv with Colin. For the last year I've actually had 'official' knitting time. I join the Knit Wits in Eganville for an evening full of knitting and chatting. They are a great group of ladies, mostly youngish mothers like me. If our husbands knew how little we talked about them, there would be many bruised egos all over Renfrew County :) We've even got the next generation started. One of the girls brings her little girls knitting. Ella wants to come too, but that will only be a once in a while event. Momma needs some grown-up time -besides, when would I have time to make Christmas surprises?
