As usual, please feel free to jump in with your own comments or snag this conversation starter for your own blog. A link back to me is nice, but not necessary.
I never used to drink coffee, but I got this fancy coffee maker for Christmas that can make things like espressos and mochas and so here I am, sucking down a cup like I've been doing this for years. I go to work at noon so this morning time is useful for a lot of things. I could exercise, clean house, or work on my crafting. I still have to finish my Boneyard Shawl! But I won't work on it, because I'm drinking coffee.
I'm not a neat person, which is why I will probably never participate in those "what's on your workdesk" prompts. I do like to think I'm pretty clean, though, which is why I try really hard not to craft with food or drink around. (Plus I have cats. I think you can do the math.) I try to either wash my hands or use hand sanitizer before picking up my yarn. I freak out a little when I drop my yarn on the floor, although maybe it would help if I vacuumed once in a while.
I know it's not weird to be sensitive to people with sensitivities, but most of what I make is for myself! I know plenty of people who let their yarn roll around on the floor like it is their vacuum. (I only twitch a little on the outside.) Am I just some kind of nut, coming up with all these rules I must obey before I can craft? Do you think it limits spontaneity and fun, or is it a good habit to have?
