I love knitting.
I love being able to make something and give it to someone I care about and it meaning something. I’m a big fan of making gifts for people. There was a year or two that I made pimp cups for all my friends for their birthdays. They were pretty sweet if I do say so myself.
I have more yarn than I have time to turn into things. I'd like to do a craft fair some time and sell the scarves and washclothes that I have piling up. I can make a scarf without looking at my hands-which means it’s perfect when I’m catching up on the TV that I missed. But when I’m working on something with a pattern, like a blanket, it become almost meditative. Knit, purl, knit, purl, knit, etc. It stops my brain. In a good way. And there are few things that can stop what goes on in my head.
I’m working on a baby blanket for my baffle. I hope it turns out cute. I also I hope I get it done in time for her shower. I also have plans to make a little hat for her. I need to find a pattern that I can manipulate a little.
Maybe one day I’ll get to the blanket that I want to make for myself. Do you have any favorite hobbies?
Happy long weekending!
