Pondering Production-All That Free Time

Yarn Harlot strikes again with words from Never Not Knitting! Page-A-Day Calendar.

She says:
"I swear, without a word of a lie, that the very next time someone tells me that they "wish they had all that free time to knit" I am going to look them dead in the eye and ask them what they watched on TV last night."

Yes, the Yarn Harlot is a little extreme, but also extremely relatable. It's not uncommon for me to talk to people about my hobbies and they ask "how do you have time to do that?" Well, I don't really, but I make time. I choose to designate my time to knitting, sewing, etc. If I want to watch TV or a movie, I count it as valuable knitting time too! I'm catching up on my pop culture and producing a product as well! What's that old adage? "Idle hands are the devil's work." (Bobby Jones' grandfather says that in my favorite movie of Luke's: Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius any of you with golfers in your life should definitely rent it! He's the Anne of Green Gables of Golfing!)
