Prompt: Write about your typical crafting time.
I feel very fortunate to be able to work at home, not least of which is because I don’t have to worry about a boss getting angry if I knit at work! Yes, there are days when I should be writing more, but I often end up taking out a project and sneaking in a few rows.

When I first started knitting, it was confined mainly to evening hours. This is because I had a toddler around who would mess with my stuff. He actually pulled a double-pointed needle out of a sock-in-progress once. *sigh* Now, though, with everyone in school, but with a still-busy schedule, I know that the only way I can finish anything is to work on it whenever I have time. There is no set time for me. I knit while waiting in the school car line after school, when waiting for kids at sports practices, on long car rides when Weedinator’s driving -- anytime I can carve out the time.

Probably one of the reasons I knit socks so much is because they’re perfect for toting along. Of course, the project makes a difference. I cannot knit lace when people are about, so this is one time I have to wait for night or when I’m alone. An ideal week for me is to fit in a minimum of five hours of crafting. This doesn’t always happen, of course, and when I don’t get that time, I feel myself getting anxious and antsy. However, knowing that most of us find ways to fit in what we want, if we want it badly enough, I know that I can almost always fit in knitting or crocheting or card-making if I’m determined enough.
That’s it, folks! Blog Week is over! I can’t even believe I posted here for seven days straight -- as much fun as it was, it also made me realize I would not want to blog every day. As it is, I’ll be taking a break from this space for several days or so and will see you soon. Ironically, I did very little knitting during a week dedicated to blogging about knitting and crochet, so I have a date with the needles! Pin It Now!
