My little bag of comfort

Around 6 months ago I moved further away from the city. I went from a 15 minutes bus ride to work to almost an hour journey: a 10 minute walk, a 30 minute train ride and finally 20 minutes on a bus. While I am not a big fan of knitting on the bus because it’s a bumpy ride and there’s not a lot of space, I must confess I am an avid train knitter/crocheter.

So every morning I pack my latest ongoing project in a small fabric bag I have sewn myself, chuck it in my handbag and make my way to the train station.

Sometimes, however, I don’t feel like knitting. Either because I’m tired, or busy with something else or my hands are too sweaty… Still every morning I religiously pack my knitting bag. Even if I don’t even open it, it’s comforting to know that it’s there in my handbag just in case I need to wander away to knitting wonderland!…


About The Knitting Scientist

I was born in a land where the sun shines bright, time passes by slowly and people take pride in what they do. My mom taught me my first stitches and I never put down my hook and needles again! Later I became a scientist, dwelling within the mysteries of life and the universe, using logic and analytic thinking, giving my humble contribution to human knowledge. Scientist during the day, knitter at night. Just like a super hero, creative hands on an analytic mind is my super power! That's me and this is my story lost among test tubes and balls of yarn!
