Seems that’s one thing that every stitcher of every skill level struggles with!
Here are 9 great ideas to help you create more time for stitching:
1. Set aside a specific time each day or week for your crafting. It could be a short amount of time, like 30 minutes before bed, or a longer block of time on the weekend.
2. Use your commuting time to knit or crochet. If you take public transportation or have a long drive to work, bring your project with you and use that time to work on it.
3. Use your lunch break to knit or crochet. Even if you only have a half hour, that’s still time to make progress on your project.
4. Get a group of friends together for a crafting night. Not only will you have dedicated time for your hobby, but you’ll also be able to socialize and share tips and ideas with others.
5. Consider starting a project that can be worked on in shorter increments of time. For example, a scarf or dishcloth can be completed in a few hours, while a sweater or afghan may take much longer.
6. Put dinner in the crockpot!
7. Make sure you have SIMPLE, “no-brainer” projects in your car, purse or desk, so that you can sneak in even 1 or 2 stitches in little moments.
8. Stitch on something (not too complicated) while watching TV, or Monday night football!
9. Work a few stitches while your coffee is heating up in the microwave.
