Southwest FL here! I'm a transplant, of course
I usually have two projects going, placed in the rooms where I watch TV. One small project (five pairs of knee booties for a great-niece) is living in the bedroom and travels with me to my home office too, for when I listen to podcasts.
My project living in the living room right now is a crocheted chenille afghan, but that's only for nights when the air conditioning is on or we're having a cool front. Too hot to have it on my lap, otherwise.
Knitting in Florida makes for good business for the post office, because all that stuff eventually gets shipped up north to family.
