Wait, you can't bring your knitting to work? Wink

That's what I did when I still had a job.  Cheesy

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

I work the overnight shift now to support our Melbourne and Barcelona office.. it's just me and the IT guy, so yep.. I bring it with depending on the workload.. Now that I've discovered that I can watch my favorite tv shows, I'll now knit and watch one episode before working again.

me too Smiley i used to be a secretary sort of thing for a headhunter and my boss would ask me to write up patterns for things i knit that she liked and then would call me into her office when she had trouble... i still had to do the normal amount of administrative work but it definitely helped ease the day when i could spend an hour or two working out a pattern... i also never got in trouble for browsing craftster Smiley

I used to bring my knitting to high school, and just sort of knit under the desk. I got some pretty funny looks from both teachers and students, when they finally realized what that little clicking sound was, but luckily no one ever made me put it away!

I knit it my grad school classes and once other students saw me get away with it, they started to!  If a teacher asks me about it I just tell them it helps me focus more in class, which is true since I fidget so much I start to annoy myself otherwise.

At work I can't knit, but I work in a library so I hold knitting programs to get away with it. Smiley
