Day seven: 3rd April. Your knitting and crochet time.
Write about your typical crafting time. When it is that you are likely to craft â€“ alone or in more social environments, when watching TV or whilst taking bus journeys. What items do you like to surround yourself with whilst you twirl your hook like a majoretteâ€™s baton or work those needles like a skilled set of samurai swords. Do you always have snacks to hand, or are you a strictly â€˜no crumbs near my yarn!â€™ kind of knitter.
The most typical thing about my crocheting time is that it’s not often at my house. When I am working on something at my house, it’s usually in the piecing-together or weaving-in-ends stage, or it’s so large that working on it elsewhere is hard. But mostly, I crochet in other places.
I tend to crochet in short bursts while waiting for or doing other things. At restaurants, while waiting for the food to arrive. In the classroom before class, and during breaks. In the theatre before the lights go down, and during intermissions. I used to crochet on the bus to and from work; sometimes I crochet in the car. At baseball games, or while watching football at my parents’ house. While sitting and listening to music at festivals.
Why don’t I crochet at home? Simple: I have a cat.
