Knitting saves the day!

I guess I was so shocked at starting a blog that I never came back!

I live in Bangkok. Anyone who has ever been here knows that means I spend a lot of time commuting. For years I just read or sat/stood there. Then I got an idea: KNIT! Ah, yes! A good place to knit! Air conditioned! So I hauled out my needles, got my stash out of the top cupboards and artistically placed the boxes around the living room, encouraged my college age niece to order knitted items from me and I was set!

Since then, I started knitting at work ... I have down time quite frequently in the afternoon, and started knitting at home. So, typically, I have three projects going: one for the bus/boat commute, one for work, and one at home. The home one will be the big one, not portable (such as afghans), the work one a more intricate pattern and the bus one more of a mindless pattern.

With three hour traffic jams not uncommon, believe me, knitting on the bus saves my sanity! (Also helps my husband's since he doesn't have to listen to me complain on my cell!). And I become very productive!
