Day Seven: Knitting and Crochet Blog Week
This is the last day of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, and today's topic is "Where you knit."
Sadly, I don't live in a city that has very good public transportation, so I am left to envy those who can knit on their commute. I do, however, take a lunch break every day, and I have found that I consistently have 30-35 minutes to knit after eating my lunch. I enjoy spending the time knitting, and the knowledge that I can knit after I eat keeps me packing my lunch instead of eating out most days.
Besides my lunch break, I spend a lot of time on the couch knitting. This is especially true at this time of year. I wrote last year about Opening Day. I love baseball. I believe this stems from the fact that I played softball in the Lassie League when I was very young. I learned the rules, or at least the rules as they applied to 7-year-olds. I still remember being shocked that a major league player could continue hitting foul balls ad infinitum. When you're playing with young kids, it's smart to make rules that you can only foul out so many times before you were called out. Without this rule, I might still be standing on a field waiting for an opposing player to stop hitting fouls.
Anyway, I understand baseball. I understand the bare minimum about basketball and football that I'm required to know if I am to convince anyone I was born and raised in the Midwest, but the games don't have the same appeal baseball has. If I'm completely honest, some of its current appeal has to be due to the fact that I can follow the game easily just by listening while watching my yarn. If something exciting happens, chances are very, very good that there will be a replay!
I'm glad someone organized the blog party this week. It has been fun to think about specific topics and know that others were thinking about them as well.
Happy knitting, everybody, and may the baseball season be a good one.
