Idle Moments 

Knitting keeps me sane, whether at a meeting, standing in a line, or riding in a car.  I listen better when I knit, and for those times I normally choose very simple patterns that do not require a lot of thought or planning.

While on vacation, my son-in-law was surprised that on a relatively short drive to my son’s house (10-15 minutes), that I pulled out my knitting and started away.  I explained that much knitting was accomplished in those few, otherwise idle moments, when you add them all up together.  That got me to wondering how many socks, mittens, and dishcloths I had knit by capturing time whenever I can.  I will never know, but I do know that these items were knit catching snippets of time, Idle Moments.IMG_2624IMG_2625

I think that most knitters do this, that is what makes this craft more advantageous than others, the portability.
