I’m going to be completely honest here. The majority of places I knit are entirely boring as 90% of the time I’m knitting on my couch, the passenger seat of a car, or work meetings. But I totally support knitting everywhere-and-anywhere (well, maybe not everywhere) and would love to hear about some of the more interesting places you’ve knit.
One of my favorite atypical places to knit is the beach:
I don’t mind a little sand in my yarn. The most interesting place I’ve knit was on the porch of our honeymoon casita in Costa Rica:
And perhaps the prettiest/strangest place I’ve knit was in the garden where we were married!
Needless to say, yarn comes with me everywhere. I should probably work on knitting in some more exciting places, though.
This post was inspired by Where We Knit, the very first Indie Untangled yarn club.
Indie yarn + pattern + surprise treat inspired by the different places we knit will be shipped out every quarter in 2016: Drops of Honey (nothing cozier than tea + knitting), Two Rivers (based on the Mississippi and the Hudson), At the Brewery, and the Beach in Fall. Sign ups are open now and run through December 20th. A lotion bar by Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe in a special fragrance inspired by the theme will be the surprise treat in one of shipments, too! See more details on the Indie Untangled blog.
What’s the craziest place you’ve knit?
I knit on a party barge during our work cruise up and down the river this past summer. My coworkers had seen stuff I’d knit but they’d never seen me ACTUALLY knitting before, so I got a lot of commentary. 😉
When I first started working at this company the marketing person was desperate for newsletter material so she wrote a little blurb about the new hires and mentioned my knitting and it is hilarious how certain people took a real interest in that, whom I wouldn’t have expected!

I adore that photo of you knititng in your wedding dress,that is so amazing and you look so beautiful and happy! The indie yarn club sounds awesome, i wish I had known about it- would have loved to contribute.
You should definitely join indie untangled, it’s mostly dyers but is turning into a nice outlet for designers too
I used to knit at NASCAR races. I still knit at sporting events. I knit while camping, at church where I knit charity hats, and in movies.
I’m lame too, only because I haven’t been very many places. I like to knit at the movies though, it helps keep my hands busy. And coffee shops of course !
That you managed knitting at your wedding shows a calmness and presence of mind even under pressure. I could barely breathe at our wedding!
