Now you know, am perfectly willing to knit anywhere, any time. But most people believe that there got be limits. Well, let me tell you. So far, the only limit I can think of (excepting the Jewish law) is my own funeral. Other than that, anything and everywhere is possible.
I have finally got to go to the sauna today to heat my poor ankle. By the way, my foot is a lot better and while still colorful, it hurts a lot less. So there I was, getting ready for sauna, throwing things hurriedly in to the bag, trying to outrun the kids, making sure I have everything I need. You better believe it, my knitting went with me.
So what does a confirmed fiberholic, who suffer from severe FDS (fiber deprivation syndrome), if not always in close proximity to yarn, pucks for the trip into sauna? Like I said, I pucked in a hurry. So I pucked light. I only had 4 projects with me.
- My green socks (knitting)
- washcloth (crochet)
- plastic twine bag (crochet)
- baby hat (do not know yet, if it is still an embryo, a bag with a ball of yarn, a set of DPNs and a crochet hook)
In the end I used up all of the yarn for the washcloth and worked some on my sock and on the bag. That is why it is so important to have multiple projects. You are never stuck or get bored.
So for all those who complain about how hard it is to knit or crochet in the summer heat, I have to tell you – it can be done. Of course, you have to ignore the sweat dripping of your face and the looks other people give you. But then again, I have gotten a few people there, in a sauna, to try out knitting or crochet.
P.S. Dear friends! I am temporally without an Internet service. I hope the problem will be resolved by the end of this week. My wonderful DH (he is in NYC) has written down this post as I dictated it over the phone. He will read to me all your comments too, so please,- do comment!
