Almost A Two Hat Day

Have you ever been in a meeting, where people are talking and delivering lots of great information, and you want to pay attention, but find yourself fidgeting or tapping your fingers or toes, or just getting restless?  This happens to me sometime, and then once I get restless, it becomes more of a chore to focus and listen to what’s being said.

At a long meeting today, I finally just rummaged through my bag and got out my emergency yarn/needles and cast on for hat number 31.  I’m getting rather predictable these days..it’s all about the Robot Hats, and I’m ok with that.  I was just not sure if it would be considered rude, or distracting to be knitting while someone was speaking.

Thankfully, the presentation was being given by an occupational therapist who recognized that my knitting was serving a purpose, and helped me focus, while she spoke.  I was so focused on the learning, that before I knew it there was a completed hat sitting on my lap, with no recollection of its creation.  

After returning home, having dinner and a nap, I picked up my cousin and headed to the theatre to line up for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-part 1.  We wore costumes over our coats, and appreciated the extra layers while waiting in line for 1.5 hours.

There were three sold out theatres at the cineplex!  It was exciting to be amidst the crowds of Harry Potter fanatics, and be the first ones to watch the film.

To keep myself awake, I cast on for hat #32.  I’m not going to reveal any Harry Potter secrets at all….but it was a long movie!  I’m so close to having accomplished the near-impossible task of knitting two hats in a day.

I think that I may attempt the Two Hat Day in the future, but for now (at 3:30 AM)….sleep seems much more important.

Am I the only one that knits through movies at the theatre?
