There are many times during the day, week, or year, when I stop and reflect on the reasons I knit. Knitting wasn't something I was taught when I was young, it was something that came into my life as I need/desire to be creative.
Knitting provides a therapy, a way to clear my mind or even help to process worries and thoughts. Then of course there is the finish product. When I started knitting I didn't think that it would play the major role in my life that it has some 15 years later.
I can honestly say that some of my best friends are those that I met through my blog or Ravelry. This got me thinking, maybe on an unconscious level I started knitting and blogging because of a need to connect with others. Lucky for me the craft I chose is one that comes with the best people that this world has to offer.
Obviously no one can predict the future and say with certainty that I will still enjoy knitting into my later years, fingers and toes crossed I will. What started out as a desire to create with my hands became more than I could have ever imagined.
Why did you start knitting and why do you continue?
Enjoy a lovely video and have the best day today!
