The Perfect Session

I was thinking the other day about when I get my best knitting done. I was wondering because I haven’t been getting nearly enough done and I was trying to figure out what I had to change so I make sure I capitalize on the time and get it done.

Here is what I have come up with:

  • A good program to watch (I tend to do most of my knitting while watching television)
  • A comfortable place to sit
  • Beverage (knitting works up a thirst)
  • Blanket/socks/warmth!
  • Pattern/project bag/notions (I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down only to have the pattern across the room!)
  • Dogs who are sleepy or outside (they always seem to know when I have settled in and just HAVE to go outside)
  • A relatively empty bladder!

I think those are the basics to a good knitting session. I don’t think I could do a book on tape unless I had a mindless pattern to knit. I would get lost between the book and the pattern. Maybe some good music if I was without television.

So what are your must haves to a perfect knitting session? Did I miss something crucial? Hit the comments and let me know.

  1. You have no idea how many times I have sat down and debated what project to work on for SOO long that my designated knitting time runs out. Putting on the tv is pretty much the best thing for me: it forces me to grab what's nearest and just work on it without thinking about why I'd rather start something new.
