I did. I was called industrious by one of the trainers as I was waiting for them to call my name LOL. If I get the job I'll attribute it to how good the knitting made me look. :teehee:

Oh, you were knitting while you were waiting... I was thinking it seemed rather gauche to be knitting during an interview... (silly me). That's great that they were impressed (as well they should be). GL with the getting the job. :P

OMG, DragonTush! It just occured to me that your name is a pun... very clever. (Sometimes I'm slow that way...) Mine is certainly draggin' more than I'd like... having a sedentary hobby like knitting certainly doesn't help. ;)

Join the group. Sedentary job; sedentary hobby. I exercise with a dvd on the computer, in my chair 'cuz I fall a lot.

I wouldn't do it, simply because I'd be looking over my notes and stuff and trying to stop being nervous.

Good luck!

I have recently started taking my knitting everywhere. In fact, when I leave the house without it, I feel weird!

Being nervous was one of the reasons I took it, It calmed me while I was waiting and impressed the interviewees in the process (even if that part wasn't planned lol)
