If you've been following @coldcomfortknits on Instagram for any length of time, you've likely seen your fair share of "pod knitting" posts. Early on in the pandemic, the car (a.k.a. the mobile self-containment pod) quickly became my personal sanity saver, replacing locked-down cafes as a daily outing/knitting spot/caffeine source.
A trip through the drive-thru for a virtually contactless cuppa, then off to a parking spot--by the lake, if I could find one--for some sunshine, fresh air, and knitting. For more than a year "The Pod" served as a lifeline of sorts, giving me a reason to get up, get dressed, and get OUT.
And, despite the infuriating number of times I had to find a new spot because some rude motorist thought it was cool to pull up and idle indefinitely, polluting the environment with noise, fumes, and chemicals (I'm still kind of bitter about that), I still count pod knitting as one of the brightest silver linings in what was otherwise a rather dark year. Thank goodness she has comfy seats!!!
