Hi Everyone,

Just wondering how long some of you knit on a daily or weekly basis? I tend to knit for an hour or hour and half when I do sit down to knit but that isn't every day so maybe weekly I get in about 6-8 hours.

Once in a while I will take a whole day (usually a Wednesday or in the summer it could be a Sunday) and just knit all day. Otherwise if I'm home I'll knit at night if the TV is on, so maybe 2 hours. Sometimes I can sneak in an hour or two in the morning but I have to skip KR to do that. I do knit almost every day, one way or another.
This week, because of extenuating circumstances, I haven't knit a stitch but I did start reading The Knitter's Gift.

I usually get at least an hour on normal days, up to 5 on really good days
Waiting in the car for the kids to get out of school is the time I can count on!

I usually knit every night somewhere between 1-3 hours, and sometimes more on my day off.

I knit most nights for about 3 hours, and sometimes I get some in during the day, especially when I have doctors appointments.

Happy Knitting,

I knit for a couple of hours in the evening, and sometimes for a longer stretch on my days off. I started a new sweater yesterday (I am finally making a Braids cardigan, with Elann Peruvian Highland wool) and I knit for so long that I lost track of the time -- but that's normal when I'm starting something, because I'm so excited!

Hmmm...probably 10-15 hours a week or so.

An hour and a half to two hours on commute, unless I read instead. About an hour or at knit group per week. Usually at least one movie on the weekend, plus about two to three hours of other random TV throughout the week.

That's a normal "mimimum." Sometimes more, rarely less.

I'm hopelessly addicted. I'm strung out on yarn.

I knit for usually 1-3 hours at night some weeks more when work is slow and some weeks less when I'm busy.

Wow guys, that's really great! No wonder some of you have projects flying off your needles...LOL I ought to just knit more weekly too but I also am a tad addicted to the computer...the only other pasttime that takes up just as much time as my knitting...and what am I looking at on the computer? Besides the usual emails and chatting with friends, why, it's knitting-related websites of course!! LOL

If I didn't faff about on the Knitters Review Forums I would probably get a lot more done, but I always manage to squeeze at least 3-4 hours a day in.

On a good day when everybody's out I just knit myself silly.

Knit on in peace and harmony.

Cheers.

I can't even come up with an average. Any time I have to wait or have time to watch a movie at home then I am either knitting or sewing. I KIP and SIP. If I set aside time, it is usually for painting. So, it could be zero hours a weeks to OMG I am too embarrassed to say.

I hate going to see my dentist because I am only kept waiting long enough to answer the receptionist's 'how are you'. No time to knit!

I usually knit for about 1-2 hours in the evenings ,while watching TV,and over weekends I tend to knit for longer periods,especially while listening to audiocassettes of some of my favourite novels.

Usually, I knit for 3 or 4 hours per night while watching TV (I watch WAAAY too much TV, but hey, I'm not really watching, I'm knitting!!) on the nights that I'm home. But I'm very involved in church and family things, so I'm not home every night.

In November and December, when I'm desperately trying to get my gifts all done in time, I will sometimes work in another 4 to 6 hours while the kids are doing schoolwork.

I usually knit from morning 'til night,seven days a week. Unless I'm doing what I'm doing now,I put my knitting down for the duration,then there I go again while I go to the next page. I do have appointments that stops me for 1-2 hrs.Then there's school volunteer thing that I do twice a week.That takes away from 8am-3pm.If I go shopping and errands there goes another 1-2 hrs.Church takes away about 5 hrs.Sunday evening (night out) takes another 5 hrs. But other then those things I'm forever knitting.

I normally knit for at least an hour between coming home from work and cooking dinner or eating if DH gets takeout. and then for another two or three hours while the TV is on a couple of nights a week. When I am working on something that is hard on my hands, I force myself to take frequent breaks (I just had to pick up the stitches from the base of my future felted bag, and that hurt like mad. I often alternate my knitting and my banjo--they take turns in my lap, and the knitting and banjo books may accidentally mate one of these days . . . those will be some odd offspring. I may be in exactly this odd banjo/knitting alternating position at MD Sheep and Wool this year--it looks like I have a demo gig there at my banjo-teacher's partner's booth. Yay!

In the morning with my coffee I try to do 15 minutes of meditation knitting, no tv or talking, sometimes with a mantra. I usually take my knitting with me and knit if I have a chance, then at least one hour in the evening with tv, also while chatting, and reading on line because i make simple hats that I knit by feel. Occasionally I crochet for a while, then back to my knitting!

Wendy, I consider that one of the major benefits of knitting--that you can watch bad TV without feeling guilty!

About an hour each night while watching TV. I start off knitting, and when my fingers get tired, switch to reading until it's time to head upstairs for bed!

And, I absolutely agree that knitting is an ideal thing to do in front of the television--if the show is boring or stupid (grin), the knitting keeps your mind from falling asleep, and yet it's automatic enough to let you pay attention to the shows you want to watch. And no guilt about "doing nothing" while sitting in front of the tv!

I am averaging an hour a day. I have had a pretty bad case of tendonitis in my left thumb for about 6 months so I can't knit as much right now.
