    When I’m sitting. I do make exception for ocasion, like church activities (I wouldn’t knit at a wedding or a funertal, for example, no no no!), formal occasions eg a dinner or a dance, state occasions, interviews eg with doctor, potential employee… But mostly, anywhere.

    Knitting helps my mind stay focussed where it might otherwise wander eg AGMs. Not complex patterns then, of coruse… As a passenger in a car or on a bus, the doctor’s waiting room, any sort of waiting, really, watching TV – pretty well anywhere I can sit.

    Not very interesting, is it? But there’s such a lot to accomplish and only 24 hours in each day!

      I’m with From Granny to You. The only excuse I need to get my needles out is the simple fact that I’m sitting.
      That is why I always have a WIP project on the table where I take reading breaks, another one near the TV, another by the computer where I spend hours correcting and reviewing texts, and a small project that’s easily packed, like socks or hat, for travel knitting, kid’s dance school knitting, conference knitting, and waiting room knitting.
      So many occasions to knit!

    And, thank you for the knitting calendar. It’s beautiful!

    I loved your Christmas knitting caldendar. I was really useful during those last weeks of gift knitting. It totally helped me keep my sanity. This calendar is cute and cool, and will come in handy to keep track of all those WIP projects I mentioned in the previous post.

  3. Rosemary says:

    Everyday, especially days I have a lot of downtime, like the weekends! I am a homebody so knitting is my favorite pastime!

  4. Lynn says:

    Thanks so much for the knitting calendar. It will remind me every day of the beautiful yarn that is just waiting for me to turn it into even more beautiful items.

    Thank you for the calendar.
    It’s quite interesting that the UK version shows St Patrick’s Day for the Irish, Star Wars Day for the nerds, Relaxation Day for those who don’t knit/crochet, and several others that a great many people wont even had heard of. And yet it doesn’t show St David’s Day (1st March) for the Welsh, St George’s Day (23rd April) for the English, nor St Andrew’s Day (30th Nov) for the Scots. :/

    I enjoy making items for others as lasting memories of my love for them. I especially loved making each of my 3 grandsons summer and winter blankets! I also love learning new patterns and seeing how beautiful they look when I’ve finished. I may make a tiny mistake that doesn’t affect the overall look but that only makes it unique and one of a kind!

  7. L Yvonne Murray says:

    Just like every yarn crafter, if I am sitting, I will be knitting (with few exceptions like some specific church events). Otherwise I actually have to be knitting.
    Most of my knitted items will be gifts. But this year I decided that every other item I make will be for me. I noticed this winter, everyone I love has hats, scarfs and something to keep their hands warm except ME! I plan to make certain that will be different next winter.
    The calendar is beautiful. I will print it the next time I get to the library.
    Thank you for all the inspiring ideas you offer in every email.
    Yvonne

    I love knitting whenever, whatever, and wherever. It is my only sport! And it is always done at the expense of housework.

  9. Janet Alc√°ntara says:

    What a darling calendar; the photography is lovely–thank you so much. I’m drawn to the May and November photos of the cast-on stitches: a new yarn and all that illusion and promise that comes with a new project…but not enough knitting to have hit any mistakes yet.

    While others spend their waiting time on cell phones and social media, I knit. Then I have something tangible to show for my time (even if only a lapful of frogged yarn…). And the inevitable, “What are you making?” from the curious leads to pleasant conversations and my encouraging them to take up knitting!

  10. Helen O Connor says:

    love the calendar, but why is the name of month written on the bottom of the page not the top?

  11. Nanny says:

    I love your comment that a little mistake only makes an article unique, I love to knit watching TV or any down time I have. Working on a wedding afghan that has to be done by April/or June depends if I finish it for wedding shower or wedding. Hopefully I caught most of my mistakes.

  12. Jolly Julie says:

    I love knitting in the afternoon – all the housework and work have been done. This is my downtime and I love it. Daytime telly is enough to make you go all pins and needle with despair whilst knitting gives you the right kind of pins and needles and finished items too.
