Just today I discovered a group that knits at different brewerys around town. Portland = land of micro brews :o) I'm pretty excited to get out there and have beer and knit... although I have had interesting results in the past with that combination ;o)

The trick is to know when to stop.

I'm not sure if I mean the beer or the knitting. Maybe both.

Knit where you want
I like to take my projects with me on the bus that I ride to work. In fact I sometimes take the bus just so I can get a few extra minutes of knitting in for the day, even if I have a car available to me. It can be a good conversation starter. If I don't feel like talking I put on some head phones and people avoid making chit chat. I feel most comfortable kip when there is an open chair and some type of waiting involved.

I often bring my knitting if I know I'm going to be knitting. Recently I had several dentist appointments for myself and my kids, and I brought along some socks that I was making for my Mom. All the office workers were amazed and asked me to bring in the finished socks. I did and they took pictures of them....those pictures are now nestled in with my dental records!!!! (not exactly sure why, but okay, whatever floats your boat!) I bring my knitting along to our homeschool park days, where Moms visit while kids play.....people know I'm listening even if I'm not always looking at them. In situations like that, though, I also don't bring complicated patterns that need more of my focus.

Thinking you should knit up some cool beer-cozies while you're there! Heh!

I bring along my knitting whenever I know I'm gonna be waiting:

Dr's waiting room
Pediatrician's waiting room
Dentist waiting room
Anywhere else I've got an appointment
Sunday night service at church
Play rehearsals
Backstage during the play
Riding in the car
Local library - TONS of other knitters come out of the woodwork when they see me knitting here!!

KIP has been my forte for a few months now.I always carry some sort of project where ever I go.I'm almost guaranteed to be waiting somewhere. The most interesting place I've knitted in public is in the queue for voting. The eyes got big,when I whipped it out. I usually get comments from older ladies who used to knit.How cute are they? Ususally before work,after work,waiting to pick the kids up from school. Anywhere and everywhere. I love it. Unfortunately it hasn't improved my handwriting at all lol. Anyone else here a lefty? I find the patterns on the vids hard to follow sometimes,I have to think in reverse.

I think that's totally exciting that a dude knits!

That's so fun and cute!!!!!!!!!

I just made a few stitch markers for myself the other day (thanks to a post on here ;o) and I LOVE them.

I'm currently obsessed with making myself a bag with my new sewing machine, but I knit whenever I leave the house... I've met a lot of random people while knitting around town
