...uninterrupted knitting...

...I rarely have any stretch of time for uninterrupted knitting - most of my knitting (and most things in general) are accomplished a few minutes at a time...

...so the trip to the Orthodontist with the Man driving gave me about 3 hours of knitting time - and a little bit more in the Orthodontist office as well...

...so I completed one mitten and started the second one...I'll be happy when this little project is over - this yarn is really difficult to work with on smallish needles - maybe it's OK on larger ones...it is really pretty and soft though...

...do you prefer to knit when you have a chunk of time or do you mostly knit a few stitches here and there?...

  1. I like to knit for long stretches at a time, but often I have to settle for little bits here and there!

  2. The mittens look great. I have tried knitting with that kind of yarn and I'm a newbie at knitting. I found it impossible for me to work with.

  3. I can relate. Projects are completed in snatches of time:-)

  4. I would prefer chunks of time for everything from knitting to painting to cooking, reading-the list goes on.
    It ain't happening in my house though. I am still adjusting myself to that fact! ;)
    The mittens look awesome!
    Peace, Angela

  5. A big knitting stretch is nice but I guess I'm also on the knit-it-while-I-can train. A few rows and stitches at a time do add up, albeit slowly for me. I checked out among some other books "Knitting 24/7" which is kinda like that, knitting whenever, wherever you can fit it in. I think you do better with it than I do...

  6. I'll do either, but going to knit night or a Ravelry sit 'n stitch makes for a couple of hours of solid knitting and I really feel like I've made progress.

  7. I wish I could knit. Maybe someday, *sigh*. Love the color of those mittens, though. Great job!

  8. Crocheting and now knitting, for me, is always best when I have at least an hour...but I will take a moment here and there too!

  9. I was given some of that yarn from my grandmother years ago and started a sweater for Riley. Notice I only said started. While I like the finished look it was hard or frustrating to work with and I wasn't using smaller needles.

  10. I like to have a chunk of time - usually in front of the tele.

  11. That mitten is adorable! So nice that you are knitting them for someone at church.
    I love when I get to work on a project for a good chunk of time, but like you that rarely happens!

  12. I love a long stetch of time; but, with four children and a hubby, I knit a stitch here and a stitch there.

    Blessings!
