I have been knitting for several years now. I love it!!! I’m not the best knitter in the world. I have a hard time using double pointed needles (so I can’t make socks yet), and I’m not very good at correcting mistakes. But give me a pattern for a scarf or a blanket, and I’ll knit it!
I find knitting to be a great stress reliever. I think that is why I stick with simple patterns that don’t require too much thought.
I enjoy using novelty yarns that add a little something special to what might otherwise be a boring scarf or hat.
