Yes! White Zinfadel! I think because knitting makes me feel so relaxed. You would think if I were so relaxed I wouldn't need the wine, but I like the combination.

Heck yeah! I love drinking red wine while knitting. I can sip and knit. It's very relaxing, and it keeps me from drinking too much.

Yes. However, I have found probably one glass of the grape, two and I would mess up a little, any more than that - well Swiss cheese for a pattern. It is relaxing, I knit in the kitchen and that is where the wine drinking is also. The saying that goes, "I like to cook with wine; sometimes I even put some in the food," well, I don't want red wine in my knitting.......

I was a professional wine writer so knitting and wine are constant companions in this household!

White Zinfandel, Chablis, Pinot Noir, Merlot, I love them all.

But, I usually get a headache with just one glass. So, I have to ration myself.

Yes, but I'm not a huge fan of wine. I prefer Micolob Ultra. But, after a couple, I HAVE to put the knitting down, or I'll have to frog it! At least while knitting, the drinking happens VERY slow, so I'm usually good.

I am, in fact, enjoying an AWESOME sangiovese right now from Niner Wine Estates in California, 2004. It's incredible. Highly recommended.

I've been known to have a nip of Scotch while knitting.

About twice a year, I'll go to the local ABC store, and buy 6 tiny bottles of different liquers to sample.

My hubby always laughs at me when I bring home a small bag full of little bottles. Then he laughs again when it takes me 6 months to finish them. (I usually pour a tiny shot glass full and sip it over the course of an hour, so each bottle is good for two different times.)

I will sometimes get a regular size bottle of Kahlua, or another sweet creamy blend. But, I don't think I can drink them anymore on my low carb diet. I'll have to look up nutrition info online to find out.
