Your knitting and crochet time

Write about your typical crafting time.  When is it that you are likely to craft – 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 majorettes baton or work those needles like a skilled set of samurai swords?  Do you always have snacks to hand or are you a strictly ‘no crumbs near my yarn’ kind of knitter?

After a full week of blogging, a complete first for me, I find myself a little stumped at the final hurdle.  I've really, really enjoyed blog week but today I just don't have anything interesting to say - clearly I've used up all my inspiration for one week.  I'll give it a try though. 
The view from my usual knitting spot.
Essentially though I don't have a typical crafting time, no particular rituals or stipulations.  If I'm in my house with nothing else to do with my hands, I will fill them with knitting or a spindle or maybe even some cross stitch.  If I'm watching something on TV which requires a little concentration then I'll make sure I work on something simple, but other than that I just pick up what I feel like when I feel like it.  I'm sure there is probably some deep subconscious reason why I choose a certain project at any given moment but I sure as heck don't know what it is. Maybe I'll give it some thought, it could make for an interesting study....or not!

So that's it, I've managed to end my blog week on a total low.   Hopefully there are lots of much better posts out there written by all of the other blog week participants.  I've come across some really wonderful blogs this week which I know I'll be keeping up with in the future and I hope I can keep this blog interesting enough that a few people come back too.

Bah...I was blogging from my son's hospital room. I don't know if you can get any lower than that with loss of creativity.

But, that's okay. I'm thinking I may revisit these posts in a couple of months (say around October) and see if anything has changed for me. I may even write about it.

Oh, and we came home from the hospital today :)
