Portable Instruments

I took both piano and guitar lessons as a kid. But it was the guitar that I was most drawn to. For many reasons. One of them being I love that you can carry it from room to room. House to house. You can even take it outside! A piano, on the other hand, has to stay in ONE room.

Now that I'm a KnitWit (previous posts), I realize that this "portability" is also playing a role in why I enjoy the knitting. i took some sewing lessons and bought a sewing machine a few years back. But I never really got that into it. It seemed such a hassle setting up the machine, getting out the material, the matching thread, etc and I was sort of confined to one room, and had to be sitting at a table. Knitting, on the other had, can be done it anywhere and all I need is 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there. And then PRESTO: a scarf!
