Knit & Crochet Blog Week - Friday

Knit & Crochet Blog Week

Location, Location, Location

Where do you like to indulge in your craft? Is your favorite arm chair your little knitting cubby area, or do you prefer to ‘knit in public’? Do you like to crochet in the great outdoors, perhaps, or knit in the bath, or at the pub?

I craft a lot at the computer. It's is convenient and the chair has a good back so I don't sit all hunch over. Although I prefer when it gets nice outside to sit on the balcony and craft. I find it more inspiring to craft outside. The lovely air, colors, etc.

When we use to have to go to a laundry mat down the street instead of knowing about the one that existed in our apartment building, I would take some crafting stuff and sit outside on the sidewalk and knit, crochet, sew. The concrete was usually not so comfortable, but I think it is more fun to craft when you put yourself in situation to continue the creativeness.

Like being in the crafting zone can help you notice other creative or unique things around you. Like the placement of a pocket on someone's sweater, the embroidery pattern on someone's bag, a knit stitch used on a sweater, etc.

  1. I agree. I'm thinking that I'll get up in a bit and go spin outside before it gets too hot.
