Have you seen the contest that Kat is having? You are supposed to list 5 places you have knit other than your own house or a yarn shop. Want to know something really funny? I’ve never actually knit in a yarn shop.
But I have knit loads of other places and narrowing it down to 5 was tricky. Here’s my list.
1. At the top of a lighthouse on Martha’s Vineyard. I also knit on the ferry going to and from Martha’s Vineyard.
2. At the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four.
3. At Wicked.
4. At the Public Library Association Annual Conference.
5. On the Gettysburg Battlefield.
That list doesn’t include all the times I’ve knit at the library, at the beach, in the car, on the subway, at parties and nightclubs and outdoor concerts, in restaurants and bars, in the pool (that’s a tricky one) and at reenactments. If I’m there, so is the knitting because I don’t leave home without it.
None of these places are particularly unusual places to be knitting, are they? I think it would be interesting to know where you wouldn’t knit. Where do you draw the line and say, unh uh, can’t knit here. I guess I’d have to say that I wouldn’t knit at a funeral. What about you guys?
