So, that’s it we’ve reached the final day of KCBW6! I’ve really enjoyed it. I’ve found loads of exciting blogs to read, gained insights into lots of other knitting and crochet blogs and even learnt a little about myself.
On day 1 I described myself as a yarn. On day 2 I told you some of the things I love. Day 3 was a day of experimenting with photography. Day 4 was a chance for me to show you my needle roll and day 5 was a chance for me to share with you my passion for sustainability! Yesterday, day 6, your chance to have your say on what type of posts you enjoy reading the most. So, here we are, day 7. Today I am going to tell you about my time and place for crafting.
Where and how do you take time out to knit and/or crochet? Maybe you don’t take time out at all and instead have your needles twirling as you try to juggle a multitude of other tasks with no ‘spare’ time to think of. Maybe you enjoy nothing more than to crochet whilst winding down from a yoga session, chatting with some friends in a nearby cafe.
Whether social or solitary, tell readers about your crafting time and space, and where you either most enjoy (or can simply find a few snatched moments) to turn yarn into something even more beautiful.
The place I craft most often is sat at home on my sofa, snuggled up with a blanket (unfortunately this is not one of my creations but I hope it will one day be replaced with my sunburst blanket WIP).
I also do a lot of my sewing at the dining table as it is the only large space to get out my sewing machine. I hope one day to have a netter space so that I don’t have to always pack everything away!
However, my favourite place to craft has to be at my works craft club! We meet once a week at a lunchtime where we can catch up on our weeks props, eat lunch, gossip and occasionally get some crafting done! They are a great bunch of people and are always willing to help out if you are stuck with a new technique or offer advice on the best way to fix a mistake. I don’t think I would have ever managed to learn to crochet or knit without them!
