Angela mentioned in the comments to 85 that she didn't know where I found the time to knit.
I think I've mentioned in the past that I have an hour commute to and from work. Crown Heights to Midtown West and back again. 50 minutes of that is spent on the subway and that is when I get the bulk of my knitting done. I usually get a seat but I have been known to knit leaning up against the door. Heck, I knit while waiting for the train to arrive. I'm not shy about whipping out my project given a nanosecond of free time. Just don't ask me to work on complicated lace or charted projects -- the Storm Water Scarf is super easy so it's an obvious exception to the rule -- as referencing charts is next to impossible.
I also knit at night and on the weekends. This knitting is less reliable than my 5 day a week subway KIP cause either my hands hurt from carpal tunnel or I'm too tired to focus or the babies are hungry and demanding attention or I'm trying to cram something else in my life.
On weeknights at home, I usually knit between feedings. You see, the schedule works out a little like this right now. Hunter can sleep 4 hours at a shot. Aden, on the other hand, is up every 1 1/2 hours or so. He's a fussy sleeper; she's a fussy eater. (And how!)
So, I usually knit a few rows between when they go to bed (around 9:00 if we're super-lucky!) and when I get drowsy (around midnight). Some nights I spend this time opening mail or reading email or checking out blogs so no real knitting gets done. Other nights the babies want constant attention so the needles don't even get a chance to come out. And then there are the nights that I'm knitting along to Arthur (new guilty pleasure) on PBS Kids at 11:30 pm.
However, the bulk of the knitting is not done at home.
So, honestly, if it weren't for my commute, I'd probably knit half as much. (Trust me, if I had to be at home, I would find an hour to knit each day, someway, somehow.)
And Angela, you're right. It IS therapy. I have been saying this for years.
I always tell my co-workers that my knitting keeps me sane and in their world.

I thought I'd have time for another post. What was I thinking?
