Sorry it's been so long...

Gosh I can't believe I haven't blogged in so long. I’ve been sooo busy and haven’t had the time or energy to sit down and write a blog. I haven’t left or anything, just been extremely busy with work (teacher), and working on my second Masters. I have however continued to knit. I just bought myself a new camera (birthday presents to myself) so pictures will be coming soon. I the mean time here are some reasons why I knit.

Knitting Is Therapeutic

Knitting is a great way to exercise your fingers and get yourself distracted in a positive manner. Knitting does take skill to master, so you learn to be patient and focused when you start to learn it. Also, it is also a relaxing and therapeutic hobby that can take your mind off of the pressures of everyday mundane life.

Yes, knitting takes practice and patience. If you need a healthy distraction or need to do something that is a little different from your usual activities, knitting can be a great hobby to take up.

Knitting Produces Useful Things

Think of all the things that you can knit. The possibilities are numerous! You can knit sweaters for yourself or make them as gifts for your family members and friends. You could make custom and very original beanies in all kinds of designs and colors. You could even make custom seat covers. There are patterns for all kinds of knitting projects. You can go wild and create all sorts of knits! Yes, the possibilities are endless when it comes to knitting. Test out and release your creative juices!

Wow!! It *has* been a long time since you've blogged. Welcome back!!! :) And congratulations on your work toward your Masters.

I agree with you; knitting is therapeutic. However, there are some troubles that nothing can distract you from. I've been struggling to keep focused on my knitting. For a time, my knitting wasn't distracting enough; it oddly (and unfortunately) served as quiet time to dwell on matters that I needed distraction from. There's something wrong with the picture. :-/
