Write about your typical crafting time. When it is that you are likely to craft – alone or in more social environments, when watching TV or whilst taking bus journeys. What items do you like to surround yourself with whilst you twirl your hook like a majorette’s baton or work those needles like a skilled set of samurai swords. Do you always have snacks to hand, or are you a strictly ‘no crumbs near my yarn!’ kind of knitter.
Step 1: Change into my “uniform” This is what my Hubs calls what I wear in the house. It usually consists of one of three sweat suit outfits or the fuzzy, soft loungewear he bought me for Christmas.
Step 2: Set up the TV table next to the bed.
Step 3: Make sure I have cell phone and house phone on TV tray (so I don’t have to get up to answer the phone)
Step 4: Place something to drink, usually a cup of tea or a Pepsi, and something to nosh on, on the table.
Step 5: Have remotes handy: DVD and TV, depending on what I will be watching
Step 6: Pull out the netbook and set it up.
Step 7: Pull out whatever project I will be working on. I usually pull out two, a crochet project, plus a knit project.
Step 8: make sure I have a notions bag, plus a hook case and/or needle case out, too.
Step 9: Settle down into the bed and begin working.
Now during the week, I normally will take a quick nap when I get home, usually while watching Judge Judy. Then I’ll have dinner and then work a bit on a project or correct papers (sometimes ze job gets in the way)
On the weekend, this is where I can be found most of the time. Unless
a) I’m on the computer and I need to do a lot of surfing, as the netbook can be slow
b.) I actually need to go somewhere
c.) I’m doing lesson plans, which take place in the other room on the desktop.
