Knitting: Because That's How I Roll.

EXHIBIT A:


So, as you all know from reading my last post, I learned how to knit. I know what you’re all thinking, you’re thinking, “Wow, not only can she compose a Top Ten List to beat the band, but she can also knit…this chick is AMAZING.” And of course you’re right. However, I have found that knitting has become a tad bit addicting, not addicting to the point where I need to have my knitting needles by my side 24/7, but addicting to the point where when I sit down with them in my hand…well…it’s kinda hard to stop.

You see, once you get the logistics down, knitting is pretty mindless. You can just sit there and allow your mind to go blank as you fashion a scarf (see "Exhibit A"), bag, potholder, or hat. So, not only is it like doing nothing, it’s like doing nothing while actually getting something done.

This comes in especially handy at the end of a busy day. I work in an industry where I have to be quick witted and overcome objections on a daily basis, if I can’t do that I’ll get eaten alive, therefore, from 8:00 to 6:00 my mind is typically running a mile a minute and to be able to come home, and just shut down is welcome. Very welcome.

So, I invite you all to give it a try. It’s harmless and only semi addicting. Come on. Everyone’s doing it. Seriously. You know you want to.

(Yes, I know it's 93 degrees outside and I'm wearing a scarf in the above photo, however I am not wearing the scarf on a regular basis, this was just for modeling purposes...and for days like this)

Are you going to post instructions? Cause I don't know how to knit and I don't know anyone who can teah me. I found crocheting very addictive, but it's hard on the fingers... I had to quit before I got totally gnarley.

You're still my hero, Jenni. I would like to learn how to knit as well.

Good for you on your knitting. Keep those needles clicking!

You might be wearing a lovely, hand knitted scarf in 93 degree heat, but you still look cool. ;)

Barry said...

Wow! She can knit, make a top ten list AND make me laugh! haha! - and here I thought you didn't need to knit to make your mind blank :P

I used to love knitting.

Everything I knitted ended up as a scarf for my Teddy Bear.

I used to know how to knit & crochet... my grandma taught me when I was a young girl, and I managed to make little blankets for my dolls.

I've since forgotten how. And I hate that. Maybe its time to start learning again.

Very impressive and way cheaper than valium.

Neil said...

How do you learn how to knit? A book? A video tutorial?

Sandra said...

A policeman spots a woman driving and knitting at the same time. Driving up beside her, he shouts "Pull over!"

"No!" she shouts back, "Pair of socks!"



Thank you thank you, I'll be here all week.

That's an adorable 'lil scarf! Now just make sure you don't lean too close to the fax machine;)

Did you ever imagine having to be as quick witted as you are now, in this crazy business we've found ourselves in?
By the way, I do have a birthday coming up and I fully expect a scarf for the big day.
What? They don't wear scarves in Vegas in September?

I've tried knitting and failed miserably. With my incredible lack of dexterity, I'd end up knitting the dog into whatever project I'd be attempting. But good on ya for doin it...

treespotter said...

just curious, but can you knit a bra?

Megan said...

You may be burning up but you look hot in that lovely scarf! You've inspired me to pick up some needles to see if I can do it too.

It was 105 here yesterday, so I put my needlework away, but you are right about one thing... "this chick is AMAZING!" ~ jb///
