On a ferry to Orkney (an island north of Scotland)! (It's possible that was the coolest just because I love Orkney so much).

Or one of many trains in Scotland...

In the basement of a pub during a music jam.

In a traffic jam.

On Mt. Etna, the highest most active volcano in Europe.  And often in the car as we drive through the Sicilian countryside.  Maybe it doesn't count because I live somewhere cool, so technically everything I do is done in a cool location.   Wink

ooh!! I have a  picture for this one!

Spring break last year my family went to the Bahamas! I had to bring my knitting because I was working on a project for school. This picture was taken on a short cruse from Paradise Island to Rose Island. It was 10am and everyone else on the boat was drinking. 

I have also knit in a small cabin in the woods in the Transylvanian (North West) Part of Romania...

This summer I went on an archaeological field school in Belize for a month, in quite literally the middle of nowhere... the site was in a nature reserve, and our closest neighbours were Mennonites. Big tarantulas, big scorpions, crazy spiky jungle territory... and there I was, in my mosquito net, hiding from flocks of winged termites, knitting a sock (Hedera) from recycled cotton. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to - turns out I was busier with exploring the environment than I thought I'd be - but I did finish one sock. I'm still working on the second.

The world is pretty f*cked up, shouldn't I be too?

Ok you all kick the crud outta what I've done. The only remotly cool place I've knitted was while in the trunk of my boyfriend's car because the other seats were full and I volunteered to "trunk". I've also knitted a pair of boxers for the Boy while sitting under my teacher's desk at school.  Grin My dream place to knit? The Tokyo Tower!!!

I don't knit but i couldn't resist this i have never thought about being crafty anywhere other than home so next time i nip into Edinburgh I'm going to sit in the Princes Street Gardens there really nice on a sunny day (rare considering it's Scotland lol) and do something other than people watch Cheesy

Wow, everyone has way mroe interesting knitting adventures than me it seems. Give me time, though. Wink

On that extreme knitting link there was mention of "skinny knitting" and I've certainly done that since I can't stand getting dressed until thoroughally dry (and hate getting dressed when I don't have to anyway) so I often lie around in the birthday suit knitting.

The most interesting place I've knit lately is at the IMAX theater watching Superman in 3D with my boyfriend and some friends. The friends thought I was a bit batty but were really impressed that I knit a whole hat during the movie. Cheesy
Oh, and I've knit on the tailgate of a truck while steaming oysters outside a cabin on a military base. That's almost interesting.

I'd like to knit by a little creek in the mountains in NC. And in a rocking chair on the porch of a house I own (or by a pool behind said house).

My favorite place to knit currently is lying on my couch at my boyfriend's house while he lays on the other couch reading. My brother says we have an "old people living room" since we moved the TV out into the spare bedroom and now we spend most of our spare time reading, knitting, crocheting, and chatting rather than staring at useless tv we don't even care to watch.

meriellyn:  It seems you and I have the same kind of favourite place to knit!  I knit constantly when I'm at my boyfriend's house, sitting on one couch, while he sits on the other reading from his laptop. 
Great idea knitting in the movies - this can be a new way to make useful hours which would normally be wasted doing something you don't really want to! (how did you knit in the dark?  I'm very impressed!)
Though, there's these knifty little gadgets now:

I make hats! I usually have a simple hat going on some 16" circs. I do the brim (ribbing/seed/etc) then leave it for the movies because I can do stockinette in the round without looking at it. I usually don't make it to the decreases but it's not too hard to do them in low-light since I already have the stitch markers in. Or course once it comes down to DPNs I must have the light.
I wasn't really interested in seeing the Superman movie except that it was at the IMAX so I made sure I had my knitting so I had something to entertain myself with just in case. Turned out to be a decent movie but I think I would have gotten bored without my hat. This time it was a white one I plan on making into a Hello Kitty hat. Smiley I've yet to try duplicate stitch and have only picked up stitches once so finishing this one should be interesting.

I'm glad I had my socks and afghan to work on last night since the boy suckered me into enduring The 13th Warrior *uuuuuugh*

I'd love to see a set of those needles! They'd be perfect for movies at home since we end up leaving the light on so I can do more than just the hats. Too bad there aren't circs or dpns though. Glow in the dark DPNs might work without needing the LEDs. Hmm...
