SBQ: What do you do while stitching?

The Stitching Bloggers’ Question of the week is:

What is your favorite pastime while stitching? Do you just enjoy
silence, listen to music/audiobooks or do you “watch” TV/movies? Do you have specific favorites you listen to/watch while stitching?

I like gaming while stitching, but I’m finding that it doesn’t work so well in one-on-one games. When we played with other people, I got a lot more stitching done, because I could do that while other players were “on stage,” so to speak. I love listening to those interactions, but I get fidgety without something to keep my hands busy.

One-on-one games are too intense, usually, to get any stitching done. I prefer to maintain eye contact with Sam, which just doesn’t work while doing counted-thread work. If I ever learn to knit or crochet, I’m told it’s much easier to do those while looking elsewhere.

I used to stitch while “watching TV,” too, but haven’t done it in some time. We don’t have cable, since we’re not big TV people, but maybe I’ll pop in a DVD of something I’ve seen before.

I’d really prefer having a gaming group again, though. Hope, Waya, and J-Chan, when are y’all coming for a stitch-n-game weekend?

  1. Glad to find you, always looking for other stitchers. I usually am watching TV or listening to music when i stitch. I don’t have NEARLY enough time to do it, but who does, lol!

  2. I often knit during gaming, generally something simple enough I don’t have to look at it much.

    I like the stitch and game weekend. Heck, I was thinking about visiting you folks regardless. Would some weekend in April work for you guys?
