Where do you knit?

Please note that the car was safely parked, ignition off, handbrake on!

One of the things I love about knitting is that it’s so portable – no bulky equipment required – you can take it almost anywhere. It’s easiest with a reasonably straightforward project, so you don’t need to follow instructions carefully. That way it’s possible to knit the odd few stitches or rows any time you find yourself with time to kill. It works pretty well for me, especially on circular needles, as long as I’m not using stitch markers, which have a nasty habit of dropping on the floor!

That’s why you’ll find me knitting in a supermarket car park on most Thursday mornings. That’s when I take my Mum to do her shopping – I sit and knit while she buys her groceries, much to the amusement of my daughter and her work colleagues. Their office is nearby and I sometimes see them on their way to buy lunch.

I’ve knitted on trains, ferries, in doctor’s waiting rooms and often in the car (always parked), sometimes in places with spectacular views, often in supermarket carparks!

Where do you knit? What is the most unusual place you have ever knitted?


I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.

  1. I don’t knit in my car but I often paint! When I broke my ankle it was my favourite thing to do, sit in the car and paint…Apart from visiting coffee shops that is! There’s so many great places in Northumberland to do his. Happy knitting ♥️


  2. I knit wherever and whenever I get the chance. I knitted my way across the North Sea to Norway on a ferry from the Tyne.


    1. Thank you! Still trying to tweak the blog settings and design so it’s easier to comment and discussion on each post shown separately by that post.
