One Step Too Far!?
March 15th, 2014
I am one of those people who will knit anywhere, in the obvious places like waiting rooms, car, cafe..even when friends are over for a cuppa and a in depth chat, I will knit while waiting for my children to come out of school and even out on day trips! and up until my daughter was a little over 2years I knitted while breastfeeding her!
I am sure if we actually went to the cinema I would even knit there!
And if I could find a way to do it I would knit in the bath!
But when does it become one step too far?
In our house knitting is always acceptable! and my family know that I will take it everywhere, my in-laws never ever question it, in fact I am sure they would question why I wasn’t knitting!
For me I can knit and do almost anything, just because I am knitting does not mean I am not paying attention, I can watch a film and still know what has happened, and have conversations about anything while knitting, I am sure many knitters feel the same.
But a lot of people would say it is rude, if you are knitting then you are not paying attention, or that you are bored so “had to get the knitting out!” and yes sometimes that is the case but not always, and not for someone who has been knitting for years!
I feel that it is a fine line, I wouldn’t want to offend anyone but I just can’t bring myself to put my knitting down! why would I need to put it down when having a good old natter…
There must be times when it is one step too far, I am just hoping that I will realize before I step over that line!
so when going out on a little get together how many of us pop our yarn into our bag ‘just in case!’?
Get in touch through one of my many social media pages or by email to ask questions or tell me about your knitting.
