I was just wondering if any of you guys knit while at the computer…like between loading screens, if it ever happens, or perhaps while waiting for replies here at the forum. I don’t seem to get enough knitting done and I am considering starting this…and if I can get my eyes away from the actually knitting, then maybe I’ll take more walks and knit while I walk
Of course I do. That’s where I keep the vast majority of my music.
I don’t really know how to vote. My computer is fast, so for regular stuff I can’t, but there have been times, like when I loaded my camera program and had to recheck things, I’ve knitted between screens.
If I’m sitting on the lounge with my trusty laptop, I’m usually watching a movie or cable TV, and probably knitting, crocheting, tatting whatever…
So yes and no…
Ohhh, I’m way too uncoordinated for that.
I wouldnt exactly say its ABSURD to knit at the computer, but my connection is pretty zippy and I am always talking to YOU guys when I need a quick knitting break!
My desk chair is one of two chairs in my room, so I often knit while sitting at my desk, though not actively using the computer.
When I was first learning, I knitted at the computer all the time because I was just making a scarf and I kept the skein of yarn and the scarf, while I wasn’t knitting, behind the laptop.
I really should knit in my other chair since it’s much more comfortable… but then I couldn’t control my music as easily.
I do all the time, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the computer is how I learned First here for the basic knit and purl (and I am surprised that they still work after the number of times I replayed them!)
Then, right after I learned those two stitches, I made Silvers socks and needed to follow each each stitch and had to have the pattern on the screen for weeks. I think it’s more habit now than anything else, but I like (and would rather) to have the pattern on the screen rather than printed.
I Wish the FT clogs could be have been downloaded rather than printed on that awful blue colored card stock. That is part of the reason mine still aren’t finished With the problems I have been having with my eyes, it’s really hard for me to read the pattern.
Sorry for the novel, I seem to be getting carried away a lot lately here.
I’m doing it right now:)
I’ve got dialup, so I do have to wait sometimes, depending on the pages. And if I’ve got nothing else to do, and I’m just sitting here, knitting gives me something to do:)
OOh!! Sounds yummy–I’d love to…but I don’t have a laptop and I just can’t knit in here where the computer is. I want to move it into the “sitting room”. We don’t have a den…or a living room–one or the other–we have ONE ROOM in which to sit and watch tv, and when company comes–they’re walking right into it. So, I TRY ( and fail) to keep it sorta kinda picked up and dusted, but it rarely happens we have company when I’ve done either. If I only had a laptop–THEN I’d knit, watch tv AND compute!
Alas, I do not have one, and I don’t have room for this desk and PC in there where we LIVE!! :XX:
I do now that I have a laptop. Especially when I am in my favorite nite time chat. Most of us in that particular location wind up knitting, so its like a virtual knitting circle.
Yes, but only when I’m reading something or chatting. I’m studying computer science and a number of lecture notes are online for us to read.
I prolly would but ours is so speedy there isn’t any time… so when I take a break I come in here… Do any of you talk on the phone and knit? I do that all the time :rollseyes: is that rude??
I knit at the computer when I’m chatting. But mostly it’s when I’m watching Amy’s video’s. The first hat I made…I had to watch the kitchener stitch video a gazillion times (and ask beldie for help too) and I finished the hat here at the computer. It’s been so long since I’ve done that stitch now…that I’m sure I’ll be doing it next time too.
I do, because I do the majority of my knitting while sitting at work…four monitors, two keyboards, one radio…
I have knitted at the computer… but ONLY when I was doing an audio/webcat. Our connection is too fast to do it otherwise. I get most of my knitting time when I go to my LKG n Wednesday nights.
Lately, Joel, it seems like you spend a lot of time changing your avatar! :rofling:
I use the scanner here at school ALOT and it very slow in between pages, so what else is there to do but :XX: :XX: :XX:
