I attended a meeting of a community group last night. Instead of the usual speaker, during which I will knit, no worries, there was a choir performing (Canberra Celtic Choir - quite fun, considering joining, although this may interfere with knitting opportunites). I just couldn't whip out the needles during a performance. Why is it that I can knit during a guest speaker, but not during a performance? I did knit during the business meeting that followed, so the evening was not a complete loss, knitting wise.
It got me to thinking about the boundaries though.
- during tea and meal breaks, weekly staff meeting - YES
- on a service point, in a meeting with the Minister, during annual appraisal - NO
- interminable teleconferences - that's what they are for, surely. That and emailing staff for hot beverages to be brought in, peferably with one or two of those nice Venetian biscuits I've been hiding behind the out of date herbal teabags.
- at traffic lights and in a prolonged jam - YES
- at speed in a suburban area, next to a school - PROBABLY NOT
- across, say, the Nullabor, in a car with good wheel balance and cruise control - TEMPTING
- swimming - BEST NOT
- walking - YES, but advanced fairisle and aran may be a bit ambitious
- jogging - Yeah, right, as if I'd ever jog when I could knit instead.
