I was at my sister's pre-nup dinner. The speaches were getting a little long and I was getting a little bored. Took out the needles and began to knit.

hmmmmm-- the place most people would probably consider most unusual would be the deck of the charles Morgan - a whaling ship at Mystic Seaport.

Does the labor and delivery room count? How about while nursing the new babe and waiting for the lactation nurse to visit? OK, it was only dishcloths, but hormones make me *really* jittery and anxious, and just sitting around was making it worse...I know the nurses were freaked out!

I want to knit while playing poker. I'm hoping to do that for my bday this year. I've done it, but only playing against my own family.

Strangest place I've knit was probably walking down one of the main streets in my city. I was working on the cabled border to the Great American Aran Afghan. I had the yarn in my backpack, and let the work dangle in front of me.

I'll knit whereever I can. I've taken my needles and drop spindle to conference meetings and sitting in traffic, while my DH drives always.I can't stand to just sit in the car and do nothing so much time wasted!!!

I knit at Weight Watchers meeting too. There is also another lady sitting at the other end of the room knitting. We had to compare projects before the meeting 2 weeks ago. Several people ask questions, but no one says it bothers or distracts them and the leader does not seem to mind.

I knit all over.... so that isn't odd
but I taught a receptionist in a doctors office to spin.....
on a drop spindle in the waiting room
I think everyone found it rather different
except me
I was spinning border leicester and wanted to get it done

I knit in a fraternity house regularly. I'm their cook and sometimes there's nothing to do but wait for food to finish cooking itself. The rest of the time I have to round up all the pots and pans they "borrow" for ice buckets. (To keep their sodas cold I'm sure) [whatever]

Yup, I knit everywhere too. Today did it standing up in line to check in for the phlebotomist.

The most challenging was to knit while getting dental surgery.

Public knitting in Paris is a lot more uncommon than in the US. Circa 2003, I got lots of stares on the bus, park, and in the foyer of my kids' school. I did knit while watching my kid have a crown put in at the dentist--the only way I could handle the ordeal. Oh, and emergency rooms---you always have to wait:(

I guess mine would be while standing in line at KFC (or for those of us old enough to remember, Kentucky Fried Chicken). Of course, I'll knit just about anywhere that I have free hands & free time, and none of them really seem strange to me.

At first I felt a little strange knitting in my art history lecture, but this semester there seems to be a sN'b section.

Lets see, I knit in the car on the way - wherever when my friend is driving. I knit at a play a couple of years ago. I knit at the doctor's office and at church between a church meeting and handbell practice and the night when we have concerts. I need to have "pocket projects" that I can knit while walking. Wouldn't it be nice if I could knit while riding my bike???!!!?!?!?!?!?

hmm...doctor's offices, waiting to pick up a package at UPS, and, the newest, the bar we frequent on Tuesday nights. Knitting seems to be absolutely fascinating to drunk people, for some reason. (I was the dd at the time.)

I'm amazed that you can do it while walking, too - I have trouble remembering to breathe and walk sometimes, I think!

As a kid, I used to read while I walked, even through the halls at school. I never ran into anyone. I had a few people run into me on purpose (no way I could have avoided them, when I moved they moved), but I was always aware of where I was going. Now I knit instead of reading while I walk. I figure that I might as well knit for the 20 minutes between here and the school. I knit slower while I walk, but not as slow as not knitting at all. And reading while walking down the street is not nearly as safe as reading in school halls. Much easier to pay attention when I am knitting, since I take projects that I barely have to look at.

Take care!

I knit at long stop lights, stopped construction trafficm and while waiting for the drive-in bank teller, and consider none of them a strange place to knit. It takes the stress out of waiting. I don't care if the light ever changes, traffic ever moves, or the teller ever gets to me. Jz
