I have had a run of bad luck with my car lately- the most recent in a series of trips to the mechanic is due to my clutch giving out (needless to say, driving up a hill on a dark and rainy night and having your clutch fail is not the most preferred situation to be experienced!!!). My car has been out of commission since Saturday night. So, today I had to bus to and from work. Although it’s a somewhat short and straightforward bus ride, I managed to get some serious knitting done!
It started me thinking– what is knitting etiquette? Is there such a thing? What are the appropriate times to whip out your knitting and go to? I think that knitting while in transit (on a bus, or as a passenger in a car) is perfectly acceptable. I guess most other bus patrons agree; no one even batted an eye at me and my knitting.
Other places I enjoy knitting:
- Coffee shops
- Lunch break at work
- Waiting in long lines
- Doctor’s offices
- Watching hockey/football
- Restaurants (when dining by myself)
- Any type of transit where I am not driving
Places I avoid knitting:
- When (non-knitting) friends are over
- Restaurants (when dining with others)
- Live sporting events
Are there any places that are absolutley no knitting zones for you? Or designated knitting times and spaces?
