Do you knit at the puter?
I was just wondering if any of you guys knit while at the between loading screens, if it ever happens, or perhaps while waiting for replies here at the forum. I don't seem to get enough knitting done and I am considering starting this...and if I can get my eyes away from the actually knitting, then maybe I'll take more walks and knit while I walk

Of course I do. That's where I keep the vast majority of my music.
Just because I'm easily distracted doesn't mean I

I don't really know how to vote. My computer is fast, so for regular stuff I can't, but there have been times, like when I loaded my camera program and had to recheck things, I've knitted between screens.

My desk chair is one of two chairs in my room, so I often knit while sitting at my desk, though not actively using the computer.

When I was first learning, I knitted at the computer all the time because I was just making a scarf and I kept the skein of yarn and the scarf, while I wasn't knitting, behind the laptop.

I really should knit in my other chair since it's much more comfortable.... but then I couldn't control my music as easily.

I do all the time, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the computer is how I learned First here for the basic knit and purl (and I am surprised that they still work after the number of times I replayed them!)

Then, right after I learned those two stitches, I made Silvers socks and needed to follow each each stitch and had to have the pattern on the screen for weeks. I think it's more habit now than anything else, but I like (and would rather) to have the pattern on the screen rather than printed.

I Wish the FT clogs could be have been downloaded rather than printed on that awful blue colored card stock. That is part of the reason mine still aren't finished :( With the problems I have been having with my eyes, it's really hard for me to read the pattern.

Sorry for the novel, I seem to be getting carried away a lot lately here.

I'm doing it right now
I've got dialup, so I do have to wait sometimes, depending on the pages. And if I've got nothing else to do, and I'm just sitting here, knitting gives me something to do
