Gettin' my Geek on...

Yesterday we took the family to the Port Stanley beach. Apparently, it was a really good idea.

Yes, I knitted at the beach.
This is my take-along vacation knitting. A simple spiral shawl from the Gathering of Lace, done in Knit Pics "Shimmer".

This is the first time I truly felt like a geek while knitting. What locations have you knitted at that let your knitting geek shine big?


  1. On an old graveslab in Ireland (honestly, nowhere else to sit). And really fiddly prestrung and crocheted-in bead knitting on a transatlantic flight - what was I thinking? It did keep me distracted from flight jitters and I didn't spill hundreds of tiny round beads throughout economy class.

    When I first pulled out my knitting at a banquet when the speaches started. When the speaches went on and on and on I was pretty sure people stopped thinking I was weird and stared at me with envy.
