Your knitting and crochet time- 2KCBWDAY7

Write about your typical crafting time.

I dream of knitting all day long but unfortunately it's not possible. During the day I usually knit when little G. goes down for her nap. Sometimes, when she's really tired, she sleeps for two hours: it's a real treat for my crafting addiction. And then there are evenings with plenty of time to knit. I find real pleasure in knitting while watching some movies or TV series. My favourite at the moment are "Lost" and "Criminal minds". It's just so nice to be sitting under the blankets and working with needles, following the action. I also love knitting and watching movies based on Stephen King's books. Don't ask me why. It might have something to do with the beautiful scenery.

What I really would like to try is to overcome my shyness and to start knitting in public. It takes me roughly one hour and a half to get to work (if I'm lucky with trains- welcome to London ;) )  and the same (if not more) to get back home. So much time for my craft but I still can't bring myself to knitting on the bus/tube/train. I use this time to catch up with reading books but I sometimes wish I was more courageous to actually pull those needles out of my bag and knit or crochet.


This is the last day of the 2nd Knit and Crochet Blog Week. It's been so much fun I am so glad I've participated. I'd like to thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments. Thanks to this fantastic blogging experience I've found many beautiful crafty blogs that surely will become my daily source of inspiration. Thank you!


  1. I used to be shy about knitting in public too! But once you do it one or two times, you don't care anymore. And especially in the UK, which in my opinion is the country where people knit on commutes the most. I can tell you I never got too many odd looks, and those that I did get were curious and friendly rather than anything else!

  2. I agree with fridica, once you've knitted in public a couple of times, it doesn't seem so scary. I don't care now, I whip out my knitting when I'm travelling, waiting for appointments, etc. I find most people are interesting and occasionally someone comes over and asks me what I'm making.
