Knitting for One #2

Ok, it’s another day, our beautiful daughter has been causing havoc in the household, but I, thankfully, have my trusted knitting to keep calm and order in my head, I hope other knitters find that sitting with their beautiful yarn and gorgeous knitting needles clicking away, calms and relaxes them? Dulls the stress and chaos around you? Realistically I know the problem is still there and needs to be dealt with but after a few rows it seems much less the big deal it was an hour or two ago. Phew.

Knitting for One

Aside

I’m in the process of recovering from a hernia op, and have more time on my hands than usual which I do enjoy (but not the pain) so I’m knitting knitting knitting, I am also learning myself to crochet which is going relatively terrible, thankfully it is only a dishcloth because I would rather the public wasn’t privy to this as it resembles a relic found in a 17th century archaeological dig, with holes and bits missing. I am also knitting the beautiful cover named Waffle Blanket by Alexis Layton using some stash yarn, along with two jumpers for me 🙂 . I am a totally selfish knitter and prefer if the beautiful knitted item is for myself, I have managed to prize the odd, small item out of my firm grip, but thankfully not many have escaped my possession.

Hi people I am new to this blogging lark but I’m going to give it a whirl,  I started knitting about 7 or 8 years ago with the help of you tube,  I can never find enough time for it between kids, work and keeping the house but when I finally sit down and get clicking the stress and tiredness floats away. When I think about it, life just keeps getting in the way,why can’t I knit instead of work? why can’t I knit instead of cleaning the house? why can’t I knit instead of doing the weekly shop (unless its for wool)? But I suppose that’s what makes it special, that precious time spent doing something I love, if I did it all the time would it still be special?
