I love knitting.
There’s something so rhythmic and therapeutic about knitting. When you hit a groove and it’s just stitch after stitch, creating something. When you see the project grow and take shape. It’s an incredible feeling.
My grandma taught me how to knit when I was 9,10,11……somewhere in there. I remember watching her knit and thinking it seemed so complicated and then she taught me how to knit and helped me knit my very own Condo Sweater. It looked similar to this….and was the perfect pink/peach shade.
I was SO proud to knit my own sweater, especially because it was a popular style back then.
I knit off and on over the years but really started to pick it back up about 10 years ago.
It’s definitely a therapeutic experience for me, now.
So today, I’m so thankful that my grandma taught me to knit so many years ago and I’m thankful that I have ways to de-stress and relax.
What are you thankful for today?
One thought on “Knitting”
I love knitting too! I also crochet. I happen to have a dish cloth on the go as a friend of ours bought a house and so my daughter and I are knitting dish cloths for him.
Today, I am thankful for my oldest son’s independence. He built a new desk/work station and today he swapped desks, without anyone’s help.
