When you’ve finished all of your housework and worked out by 10:00 you sit back with coffee, knitting and Buzzfeed Unsolved.

I usually start knitting with my cup of coffee when I wake, four hours later and I’m still knitting not wanting to do the responsible things.. I’m going to have to try your approach!


Rossabella315

I dunno your approach sounds pretty wonderful.

Walk the dog, think, "I should clean the house," all day while working/knitting/toddler wrangling. After dinner, think, "I should really clean the house before toddler bedtime." Toddler bedtime happens, "Oh no, I can't vacuum now, I don't want to wake him up." (knowing full well it will not wake him up). Weekend comes around, "Why is the house always such a mess?!" Wonder why I never have free time at the weekend.


psychyeti

There is no free time with a toddler. Neither is there cleanliness or order or emotional or physical peace. Speaking from my current reality.


HmmSinkSo

I tidied the living room because I'm babysitting my nephew, that's about the limit of my energy. He doesn't nap, either, so days are *long*!

No pattern and the yarn is, I’m pretty sure Red Heart Super Soft (black) and I have no idea what the yellow is because it was given to me in a huge bag of yarn without labels.


HmmSinkSo

I love it! I did yellow and black soaker for my toddler, he calls it the bee wrap!


ViralLola

I'm going to miss the Ghoul Bois but I've been watching Shane and Ryan on Watcher.


matildaisdead

Watcher is good! I’m a big fan of Puppet History!

Good for u!! I am the opposite today.😂 I got up at 5am and thought, "I will just knit a few rows, then start my housework" Well, it's currently 1030am and I have a huge chunk of a lace scarf done for xmas gift! As each row passes, I feel guilty for not getting housework done, but not guilty enough to do it just yet!😂🤣 Enjoy your knit time!


matildaisdead

hahaha that’s how I was too but then my apartment was quickly turning into a cry for help that smelled like cats. I still have two more rooms to deep clean and a closet to organize but I’ll get to them on my next day off.


LoBurgundy

You well-spent your time! How awesome....hand knitting a lace scarf for Christmas gift!! Talent, time-management and thoughtful Christmas crafting....well-done 😁

OK I thought you meant 10pm and was like "Uh. That's when I go to bed, otherwise Knitting Mistakes Are Made."


Elivey

I will never learn my lesson of knitting tired. Unless I'm just going around and around/ back and fourth in stockinette lol there will be mistakes. Then I'll wake up the next morning and do it right in the first go. But I never stop doing it!


trigly

I have ripped out and redone this slipper I'm working on like 100 times. I keep knitting while tired and playing a board game... The results are predictable.


[deleted]

I save my mindless projects for late knitting/fatigue knitting and things that require a functioning brain only have short periods of focused work!


matildaisdead

haha sorry! I definitely meant 10 am


TakeMetoLallybroch

I'm the same way! I try to get everything done, and my reward is to sit down, get both dogs in the chair with me, and KNIT! I've also started going to get my granddaughter early at school so I have an excuse to sit in the pickup line and knit. Have fun!!!


rainbowpegakitty

This is what dreams are made of!!


LadyReaping1234

For real! This is heaven…


pinkpurlpolkadot

Nice!! Fellow Buzzfeed Unsolved knitting fan here. Are you a Boogara or a Shaniac? 👻


matildaisdead

I’m definitely a Shaniac!


pinkpurlpolkadot

Same! Rock and roll, Buckaroo!


hammerandtAWWngs

This makes me so happy!! I love them but none of my friends watch them 👻


sirsaintsgirl

You do the housework first?! What a novel concept. Btw, anyone want to come clean a trash heap disguised as my house?


matildaisdead

I just started doing that. Turns out I like doing it first because then I have the rest of the day to do nothing.


bellapoch

This is the dream.


iluvpenelopegarcia

where i aspire to be in life😔✊🏽


CaramelRemote

Perfect combo! I love love love Unsolved. And Watcher too.


matildaisdead

I just watched the Small Pox episode of Puppet History and can’t stop talking about it lol


Emotional-Apricot289

I’m so jealous! Enjoy! 😁


tyegrrlily

Everything I wanted my day off to be but instead I’m still asleep on the couch 😭


Lady_Sticated

I love everything about this!


kclem010

I’m very happy for you stranger :)


hotdishcurious

Living the dream.


wasser24

This is my bridge now!


Constantanxiety420

I’ve got that same keep cup thing lol


matildaisdead

Target! I love it!


Constantanxiety420

Haha yeah right!


Downtown-Coyote-844

Tell me more about buzzfeed unsolved. That definitely sounds like something my wife and I could get into. I’m googling it now, but am patiently awaiting your reply 😬


matildaisdead

It’s just two guys, a believer and a skeptic, who talk about and explore haunted locations! They have a true crime series too!


Downtown-Coyote-844

That sounds like fun lol. I checked your profile for more of your knitting work and was pleasantly surprised by your taste in music lol. I’ve been a coheed fan since before they were coheed. Rock on. 🤘


matildaisdead

Shabutie! I just saw them in Columbus. They always put on a great show. I have a Coheed tattoo!


matildaisdead

Also, I’m sure you noticed the subreddit /r/justpooped. My brother made it and it’s just us and our sister posting horror shorts on YouTube lol.


Downtown-Coyote-844

That’s amazing!!! Can I join it? My brother is a huge horror nut. He would also probably like that stuff.


matildaisdead

Absolutely!


Technical_Cupcake597

Knitting is the only reason I get anything else done. I’ve waited many years for something motivational enough to get me to do the laundry and dishes after work, but the promise of two uninterrupted and guiltless hours of knitting is well worth it!


stressedhamsters

Ohhhh. I want to start watching that!


K3tbl

I prefer Stream of Blood’s RPG streams, but i agree with the general concept here and applaud your methods :)


sparkle_tangerine

YES!! I LOVE THIS FEELING.


Spare_School_2413

Sounds like a great time! Love that rich brown color too


matildaisdead

It’s actually black. I’m not sure why it photographed brown lol


Spare_School_2413

Very cool! I always have trouble seeing my stitches with black yarn, is it easier to see on circulars? I'm just beginning on circulars and haven't tried a dark color yet


half2happy

Looks like OP has plenty of natural light. I'm using a dark purple for my evening knitting and it's kind of a pain.


matildaisdead

It might depend on the person. I’ve never really had trouble seeing the stitches.


whenwolf11

I’m supposed to be packing for a cross country business trip during a pandemic. Ugh. Would very much rather be at home with my bf, just chilling and knitting.
