Knitting while surfing
Does anyone else knit while reading and posting on this forum? I find it a lot of fun, almost like knitting in a room with friends. I do find myself having to recount stitches sometimes in order to stay in pattern.

I do it all the time, Ive dropped a few stitches here and there, but that's the price of multi tasking

I can't surf and knit at the same time, hence the UFO's. How do you do it?

Nope, i never knit and surf...crap I dropped a stitch, brb

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I hear ya friend(s)...

I think that's the main reason why I have so many things OTN at a time...

Complicated items for "free time", simple garter stitch items for surfing, TV-watching, etc.

Definitely don't watch a foreign language film with subtitles or silent film while knitting! Impossible to keep up with knitting OR the film!
Yours in Time and Space,

It's great to surf and knit...especially when you are having a problem with something you're working on and someone is in the chat forum that can help and talk you through it!
A stitch in time still gets dropped

OTN: Wheat Ear Cable Yoke Sweater
Irish Hiking Scarf & Watch Cap
Raglan Sleeve Hoodie

Um, yeah....I'm guilty. It has been the reasoning behind a lot of frogging and also the reason why I am so slow to respond to people.....I just let them go on believing that I am a slow typist

OTN: Palindrome scarf for Mom
My practice scarf that I'll
