OOh!! Sounds yummy--I'd love to...but I don't have a laptop and I just can't knit in here where the computer is. I want to move it into the "sitting room". We don't have a den...or a living room--one or the other--we have ONE ROOM in which to sit and watch tv, and when company comes--they're walking right into it. So, I TRY ( and fail) to keep it sorta kinda picked up and dusted, but it rarely happens we have company when I've done either. If I only had a laptop--THEN I'd knit, watch tv AND compute!
Alas, I do not have one, and I don't have room for this desk and PC in there where we LIVE!! :XX:
I'm Bluebird49 at Ravelry!!

OTN--Just socks right now. Not good at more than 1 thing at a time!

I do now that I have a laptop. Especially when I am in my favorite nite time chat. Most of us in that particular location wind up knitting, so its like a virtual knitting circle.

Yes, but only when I'm reading something or chatting. I'm studying computer science and a number of lecture notes are online for us to read.

I knit at the computer when I'm chatting. But mostly it's when I'm watching Amy's video's. The first hat I made....I had to watch the kitchener stitch video a gazillion times (and ask beldie for help too) and I finished the hat here at the computer. It's been so long since I've done that stitch now...that I'm sure I'll be doing it next time too.

I do, because I do the majority of my knitting while sitting at work.....four monitors, two keyboards, one radio........

Children don't care how much you know....they want to know how much you care.

Don't mess with dragons....they think you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!

I have knitted at the computer... but ONLY when I was doing an audio/webcat. Our connection is too fast to do it otherwise. I get most of my knitting time when I go to my LKG n Wednesday nights.

Lately, Joel, it seems like you spend a lot of time changing your avatar! :rofling:
