Surprisingly, knitting is a hobby that is now enjoyed by people of all ages and not just grandmas making Christmas and birthday presents for their children. Neither of my grandmas knit; I actually taught myself when I was a 20-something after seeing the huge variety of things I could knit, especially the more modern patterns. I like to go out as much as anybody else, but when I’m at home I’ll more often than not spend and enjoy an evening by knitting and watching my satellite tv. Knitting can be so cathartic and relaxing, but it is so productive at the same time.
Of course, I cover the basics, especially when it comes to gifts: baby blankets, scarves, etc. Some of the more beautiful accents in my home have come from knitting, though, like my rust-colored placemats and sky blue tote. I have only been knitting for a few years now, but after the initial hurdle of teaching myself the lingo and how to read patterns, it was pretty easy to learn and now consider myself an expert. For me, knitting is one of the more useful and inexpensive hobbies, one with endless variety and options.
