  • 4 Things You Subconsciously Do When You Are Crafting


    It has happened to all of us. You sit down to knit or crochet and suddenly 4+ hours have passed. You were really in the zone! While in the zone, sometimes you develop habits that you don’t even realize what you are doing.

    This happened to me recently and it got me thinking. What do I do when I’m crafting?
    So I came up with this list:
    4 Things Crafters Do While Crafting
    1. Think about your to-do list.
    We often think of other things we should do while crafting. Don’t get me wrong. I think it is important to schedule for craft time. However, life does go on around you. You think: “I should do the dishes, take out the trash, my friend’s birthday is coming up (I love birthdays), take the dog for a walk…” The list goes on.
     
    2. Solve problems.
    I don’t just mean problems related to your craft; I mean problems like world hunger. You overheard an opinion earlier that day. Even though you didn’t give your opinion, crafting time is a good time to figure out what that opinion would be if someone had asked you.
    3. Watch television.
    Or Netflix. At one point I thought it would be fun to name each project after what TV show I was watching while working on it. There is a joke about crafters getting through half a season and still not knowing what the characters look like. It’s the easiest thing to multitask with crafting!
     
     
     
     
    4. Not realize someone is talking to you.
    So there you are in the crafting zone. You slowly realize someone is talking to you. You have, however, realized this too late and don’t know the context. You are forced to decide whether to nod and smile, or acknowledge that you weren't paying attention. Happens to me all the time! I usually go with the nod unless I sense distress.


     
    Thanks for reading! I hope you get a laugh when you find yourself doing any one of these things! 
     
    Stay Crafty!
     
    -Marie
