Conference call knitting

Every time I get frustrated at my day job, I remember “hey… they let me knit” and suddenly things don’t seem so bad.  Really!  Freedom to knit is quite the perk.

In my line of work, I frequently have to attend several conference calls a day.  These calls typically involve the meeting host sharing information via live meeting or some other web conferencing tool.  This means I need to pay attention to the screen and that I can’t multitask.  Enter knitting…

With my wireless headset, conference calls provide optimal time for work in garter stitch or stockinette in the round, like vanilla sock knitting.  Sure it may take me 9 months to finish a pair of socks (like the ones below), but that’s a small price to pay for the freedom to knit at work.

    I’ve always wished I could knit on the job! When I go through a serious knitting spurt, I think of time in terms of how many rows I could have finished were I knitting.
