What a great giveaway!
Since I'm a SAHM I find time between chores to knit. Laundry in the wash? Knit. Mop the floor and it's drying? Knit. You get the idea. Also I set aside one afternoon per week for a knitting date with my friend Allyson which helps me keep my sanity. Hope I win because I friggin love this yarn!

I do most of my knitting in class! As a full time college student, lectures are pretty much the only time I have to sit still.

I carry my knitting with me always that way if I'm waiting for something/someone or if lunch is over early I knit a bit. Other than that I knit at night while watching TV...after everyone is asleep :) It's me time!

KJ said...

My favorite knitting time (although sometimes this doesn't work so well for me) is right before bed. I snuggle up with a cup of tea and my iPod, and off I go for a little while.

Jenn said...

These days it's at night watching television. Sometimes as we are driving, but lately the time just doesn't seem to be available for me.

Beth said...

I'm a nighttime knitter. I find it very relaxing to sit down with my knitting and listen to podcasts.

Amy said...

My favorite time to knit is in the quiet of a weekend morning before the guys are up and becasue I don't have to rush to work. I love to sit in the sun of my front window and listen to music.

Amanda said...

Oh man - finding time lately has been hard, but I enjoy knitting in the evenings while we watch TV. That's the best way to end a day!

fal00la said...

My favorite time to knit is after the boys go to sleep. Having sharp sticks in my hands doesn't work when they're awake.

fal00la said...

Favorite time to crochet? Between housework, but usually it's when they boys just want to play without Mom standing over them. Lol it's our break time from each other.

pinkundine said...

I like knitting in the evenings, whi;le watching TV - makes me feel less like I'm lazing around doing nothing ;)

pinkundine said...

Ooooh, just remembered something - I managed to make almost an entire mitt while stuck on the motorway in heavy snow for 9 hours (don't worry, I was the passenger!)

Any time and all the time!

During school, a movie, riding in the car (but that'll change soon...since I'll acquire my license, haha), at night...listening to an audiobook.

Karin Rush said...

I like to knit at the coffee shop, while watching TV, at my local LYS, just when I wake up, just before I go to sleep. When is my favorite time? Is there a bad time? ;)

SewSassy said...

Favorite time to knit is when I am all alone. I actually hum, sit indian style and get into a medititave state.

SewSassy said...

My crochet habits vary, usually during any length car ride, during tv time, at meetings and late at night instead of snacking. I have Crochet-A-thons during most inclement weather.

stitchbrinnstitch said...

Ooh, pretty! To answer your question: I knit all the time. I usually always have knitting on me. Just a bit ago I was knitting in the parking lot of my apartment complex while waiting for a fire drill to be over. : )

CeCe said...

My favorite knitting time is in the afternoon (when I don't have to work) while the Food Network shows are on. :)

CeCe said...

I also like to knit in the evenings while watching the sitcoms or crime dramas like Law & Order and Criminal Minds. :)

CeCe said...

(Final one. lol)

I also like to knit when I work as a sub teacher and the teacher only left a movie to keep the kids busy. Don't worry though, I keep an eye on the kids like I'm supposed to, so I make sure the knitting I take is something I don't have to devote too much brain power to. ;)

Donna said...

I love.to sit on the porch and watch the birds come to the feeder while I knit.

Kae said...

My favorite time to knit is in the afternoon, sitting on the couch with feet up on the ottoman. I find it relaxing after all of the morning's activity.
This is a great giveaway: beautiful yarn.

Montymoo said...

I knit whenever and wherever I can- in the morning before work I can usually get a couple of rows in, when I come home for lunch, before dinner, after dinner, at hockey games, at knit night with my girlfriends, in the tub (not a good idea with wool- it gets kinda sheepy smelling in there) lol. My house is always a mess, but I have lots of projects finished to show for it instead. :-)

Montymoo said...

Last summer, I sat on the beach and knit the fronts to a sweater. I loved the looks I got from people, but not one person came up and said anything to me.

affiknity.com said...

I do all my knitting after my kid goes to bed. That is the only time I get!

knittingnurse said...

I love the yarn for this giveaway. Pink has always been my face color!

As a nurse I have very little time free at work but bc I work in a large teaching hospital, we must park in lots that are "off campus". We must ride shuttle buses to and from the hospital and the parking lots.

I spend the time on the bus knitting and have actually seen other begin to knit/crochet on the buses as well.

It's a great way to unwind before and after a long day at work!

knittingnurse said...

I actually enjoy knitting whenever and wherever I can. When in the car as a family, my hubby is usually the driver so I knit to pass the time. I have been known to knit while my son is at sporting practices although never during his competitions!

knittingnurse said...

Whenever my husband wants to watch a sporting event on TV, I usually am only interested in very few of them. Rather than going to another room or out of the house, I put on my earbuds, play song or podcasts on my iPod and sit with him while I knit. That way we are together but neither one of us is doing something they don't want to do.

Kristina Knits said...

I love knitting on the bus in the morning, as long as I'm not too tired. Also, now that the weather is getting nicer, I am looking forward to knitting outside on my lunch break- get some fresh air & knitting time... can't get better than that!

Lynn Anne said...

I love knitting any time - but I can't stand the thought of starting my day without at least a few minutes with needles and yarn. It's the perfect way to wake my brain and fingers.

Knitrageous said...

I try to always have a 'no-brain-knitting' project with me. By that I mean something that I can easily put down and pick up without worrying about messing something up. I knit in the car (when I'm not driving!) and at lunch at work. At home I squeeze it in when I can, often multi-tasking by knitting when I'm on the computer! I try to get in some each day for sure. It doesn't work so well to knit while in the bathtub though!

Meredith said...

I live knitting on a school night after the dinner/bath/bed routine is done. So indulgent!

Montymoo said...

I just realized my absolute favorite time to knit- the BF left for work, and I am on the couch with a cat in my lap and a dog at my feet. sigh.... :-)

tgknits said...

I love to knit when ever I have to wait anywhere. I also like to knit curled by the fire.

Lori said...

What a great giveaway! I knit every chance I get, which in my life means most every day at lunchtime - I'm teaching myself to knit using the Continental method after 48 years of using the English method. It's very hard but I know it will be rewarding in the end. I also knit every night and all weekend with one dog on each side of me - it's SO lovely and relaxing! And finally, my BFF and I spend every Friday night in Starbucks, and I knit there as well. Yes, I love to knit!

Amanda said...

Oh! I just found another one - on my lunch hour. I weaved in the ends for a pair of mitts today and it was highly satisfying. :)

Iunia Titus said...

Third time is the charm? Hopefully. Since my comment got eaten before, really, I love to wait till the spawn is in bed, then hop on up into my bed with by bowl of yarn for current project and sit turn netflix on the blu-ray and just knit while watching movies at night.

knitty_kat said...

That is one seriously pretty pink!

My favourite time & place to knit is on the weekend, curled up on the sofa with my dog, a tea and some music in the background. If I'm lucky I get to crack the sliding door, get some fresh air and enjoy watching the birds or squirrels.
