Knitting at work....rainy lunch times


The photo above is my desk at work, homemade lunch and my first attempt to knit a scarf.

I find it so difficult to find time for crafting....I don't know how you gals/guys do it (fellow crafters). I try to squeeze time during my lunch hour for knitting, but only if it is pouring down with rain. If its not raining, I like to go for walks and Fridays are spent socialising with colleagues at lunch times. Then I try to find time after the rascal has fallen asleep, but living in a flat means that I cannot use my sewing machine late at night, so knitting only. Weekends are spent doing housework and spending time with family, but I do try to squeeze some time then.

That scarf pattern looks lovely!

I know exactly what you mean about trying to shoehorn in some crafting time in the day. Having children makes free time a rare commodity!


Thanks for your comment on my blog - it's good to know I'm not the only one struggling with space issues! You were asking about the wemake fair - it should definitely be child-friendly (I have a 4 year old too). If you click on the button on my sidebar, there are more details of time/place/stalls, etc. It would be great to see you there :D
