Why I knit

August 15, 2017

Before I started knitting I only saw it as an activity for old people who had too much time on their hands but as I've grown as a person I have realised that it has value to one's time. I could spend a few hours scrolling through Instagram, destroying my self esteem, or I could use those hours creating something beautiful that boosts my confidence and well-being.


The activity morphs me into a mediate state as I work rhythmic patterns and embracing repetitive movements. Whether it be the choice of yarn, to the colour palette, each project tells a new story about how I felt in that moment. Sometimes my projects are not completed and I frog the yarn but in that time I have a chance to be still and unclog my mind.

Although my hand are occupied I tend to keep busy while I knit - catch up with soaps, listen to music, call friends, and research new stitches. I like the contrast of a "quiet" activity in the mist of chaos but for you it could be a different experience. You could find a pattern, log off the internet, and dedicate your time to yourself and your yarn. It all depends on your personality and creative journey.
