Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Day 5

Location, Location, Location

Where do you like to indulge in your craft? Is your favourite arm chair your little knitting cubby area, or do you prefer to ‘knit in public’? Do you like to crochet in the great outdoors, perhaps, or knit in the bath, or at the pub?


I feel inspired by Dr. Seuss...

I would knit in a house.
I would knit with a mouse.
I would knit with a fox.
I would knit in a box.
I would knit here or there.
I would knit anywhere.

Most of the time it's train knitting as I commute via Metra into Chicago. This gives me 45 min each way to indulge in fiber.

If the planets align for my lunch break to meet with a beautiful day then I go to the park to knit for a bit.

At home I really wish to have a chair to call my own, but a spot on the couch does quite well. I also bring my knitting in the car and knit while my husband drives... or knit at the park while the kids play... or in the dentist chair waiting for the doc.

I think by exposing the public to fiber, we are waking them up to Our World. This isn't some behind closed doors kind of lifestyle. Be proud, be true and hold those hooks and needles high!

I love the knitting bag! I also agree with your sentiments. Plus I can't bear empty time with empty hands. Knitting fills both.

I also love the knitting bag. I agree with you that we need to expose other about fiber and knitting, that is why for speech for my informative speech I talked about spinning yarn and my persuasive speech I did why everyone should knit or crochet. I knit anywhere I get the chance even at school.
