>I am a project whore. There’s no denying or hiding from that one. I have too many WIPS at any one time and probably have ten more in mind. I blame the fact that I knit everywhere so it is important to have projects to suit every possible occasion. Just for an idea of what I mean I’ve knit in the following places:
|At Knit Night|
- trains (both subway and cross country), planes, (and yes,) auto mobiles.
- Doctor’s and dentist’s offices, and at the mechanic.
- In many coffee shops and pubs.
- In the park and around the campfire. (I love the last one, but it’s important to remember everything will smell like smoke.)
- I knit with friends on their back decks or sofas or at one of our favourite yarn stores.
- I firmly believe in having “Film Festival” socks as they keep me sane while in the super long lines.
- I’ve knit across Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and P.E.I. I’ve made socks on the train to Montreal and while sitting with my friends watching British television in a rather cosy Hong Kong flat.
- A half season of Fringe accompanied the production of my Lady Eleanor and Dr.Who is currently occupying my knitting time. (I’m slowly warming up to David Tennant.).
Knitting for me is a way to unwind after a long day at work and helps me to enjoy movies and TV a lot more. It keeps me sane and calm. It allows me to focus my energy, and I can sit still when I knit. The bottom line is my knitting is whatever I need it to be whenever it need it. Now, I just have to figure out how to knit while I’m on the treadmill and I’m set.
