Maybe not bringing my knitting to my own wedding, if and when that ever happens, wouldn't be such a good idea. I have yet to find that very special someone I guess.

Hmmm. Maybe having a knitting themed wedding, where knitting is allowed, at the reception of course and not the ceremony, might be something one could think about......

I don't take baths so I don't take my knitting (or knitting magazines) into the tub with me.
Lately I don't take my knitting anywhere with me b/c I take my 2 boys (3 and 1) with me.....in fact I'm not even sure I take my sanity anywhere.
Honestly my favorite place to knit is long car trips ! My hubby prefers to drive, the boys are strapped in their carseats, I cannot sleep or read in the car so I sing kid songs over and over and over and over and over again while knitting a baby afghan that is 14months overdue (to my own son).

Oh well. The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome. Hope they like the afghan I knitted them!

Lol I always think whenever I'm sat about doing nothing that I wish I'd taken my knitting even if its only 5 minutes, I could've done a row or two.

Oh boy... two boys. That's what I have and I would be insane without my knitting. Simple tasks are sooooo complicated. Going to the park seems simple, but is fraught with trips to the public bathroom, running interference with other children and trying to keep the boys from getting hurt. Blearg!

Oh, I can't begin to imagine having two young boys. Then again, I couldn't begin to imagine myself with kids, period!!

I take my knitting and crocheting to church because I am adhd and can't sit and listen if my hands isn't busy. Even at home I either read or watch tv while I knit or crochet.
I even keep a small project in the car at all times so if I am caught in traffic I have something to do. I HATE to waste time.

I've definitely brought my knitting to the movies -- even the opera. As long as I have quiet needles, I'm sure it's fine. Anyone attending either of these with me knows me well enough & doesn't mind!

I've also brought my knitting into lectures/classes (I usually asked my instructor, but I went to college for Textiles, so half the class was usually knitting or crocheting), & I often bring it to the bar if we're grabbing a table.

Not the shower,meals or when I am driving or say asleep, but sometimes when I am waiting in a hospital waiting room with my elderly mother I wonder why I didn't bring it!? Although it scares people when you drop stitches and swear at it....

  • Church
  • Business meeting
  • Grandchildren's recitals, plays, and games.
  • Anywhere else where it would be rude to give the speaker less than my full attention, and out of respect for their hard work I don't even want to 'appear' to be uninterested. Knitting is not more important than people and their feelings.
  • To a dinner party or social function hosted and attended by non-knitters. Best to circulate and visit with people, giving them my full attention. If knitting is more important than people, it's best to stay home and knit away!
