Does anyone else crochet or knit with your tongue stuck out? I always seem to do it when I get really into whatever I'm making. Then I notice and feel really stupid.

Useless post. Hum. ^_^

Well, you probably have a good, strong tongue as a result of your being a hooker.

that's so funny... i used to stick my tongue out when I was concentrating real hard, but never really realized it... but when i was in second grade, a girl told me she'd have her older brother beat me up if i didn't stop, guess it bugged her  Sad  so now i don't anymore...

I do that, among lots of other things. Specially biting my lower lip, stiking my tongue out, and biting my tongue  Roll Eyes

I tend to leave my mouth hanging open when I crochet! LOL
 It's a concentration thing.

Ah, the concentration face.  This is similar to the face guitar players make, but usually less, er, energetic.  My concentration face is inherited.  My dad makes the same face, and so does my daughter.  It involves the mouth hanging half open in a look that gives the impression of an IQ of 43.  The, slowly, so you might not realize it if you watch it happen, until it's finished, my tongue sneaks forward until the tip rests on that sagging lower lip.  This gives the impression of that 43 IQ dropping about 10 points. 

Now, at various times I've tried to find ways of battling this face.  None of them work out.  The first think I tried was to keep my lips together when my mouth fell open...  But then my tongue presses against my closed lower lip, and I look like I have an IQ of 43 AND a wad of chew.  Another thing I tried was keeping my teeth together and pressing my tongue against my bottom teeth.  This seemed to help more than the other, except my mouth still falls open, and then the MIDDLE part of my tongue pops out between my teeth instead.  I'm not even sure what this looks like, but I know it can't be pretty.  And plus, it tends to make me grind my teeth, and that's just no good.

If I bite my lip, I don't make the face, but I actually have to do that consciously, and it isn't always easy to remember.  *sigh*  Oh well, at least I know I'm not alone.

I used to do that, but it's one of the things of my dyspraxia (co-ordination issues).  I've taught myself to roll my tongue and tuck it up inside the roof of my mouth, which is what I do when I'm typing, driving, anythng that requires me to pay attention to my co-ordination!
