Tas over at Little Boozle wrote a post about the ettiquette of crocheting/ knitting etc. when people come over to your house say, for dinner. Not only do I think this it is OK and I would also add in embroidery, sewing little faces onto these and mending holes etc in clothing to the list of activities I think are ok to do in front of other people. It is not like I am sitting there touching myself! Anyway I raised the point that not only do I do it at home ( the crafting I mean!) I will take crocheting when we go to other peoples houses for dinner- quite often I will be making a beanie for one of their kids but it has never once occured to me that people would be offended by it? I just don't cope with idle hands. I still contribute to the conversation and make eye contact, I don't see the problem.
So, in order to find this out for sure I have made a poll- it is anonymous to enter and you can tick more than one box. See it over on the right? But before you go: has anyone ever said anything to you about crafting at home when they come over? any complaints? Snide comments? Do tell all.
Also if you are at all interested the lovely Cam interviewed me at her blog Curlypops as part of her Creative Peeps series, awfully nice of her I do think.
