A rather manic week in the madmum household has meant a lot of knitting in public (or KIP'ing) and very little knitting-in-front-of-the-tv-with-a-cup-of-tea.
The places I have managed to KIP this week include (but are not limited to):
School hall (waiting for parents evening)
Traffic jam (engine off, I hasten to add)
Waitrose (very long queue)
Sports hall (waiting for two small peeps)
Birthday party (as above)
This week has brought it home to me just how much time I spend ferrying people around, driving to and from work and other appointments and a particularly nasty tailback on the motorway reminded me of the importance of keeping knitting about my person at all times.
Such mobile knitting has pros and cons though. I need a simple project that I can just grab and go - hence the finished blanket. Unfortunately that means that the complicated sock pattern I am working on and which is destined for my father-in-laws Christmas present is no further forward than it was a week ago.
Still, hubby is out tonight with work colleagues so I have the TV remote control, boys on their way to bed and a mug of tea ready for some cosy knitting-in-private!
