Usually when I tell people that I’m crafty, they laugh.
I am crafty…and not in a bad way.
When I was a little girl, around 7 or 8, my paternal grandmother taught me to crochet. It’s something that I enjoyed doing with her. She made these wonderful blankets which are still at home in the living rooms of my dad and uncle (her youngest boys).
Then I went through several years of experimentation. I tried needlepoint, scrapbooking, etc…
After my mom passed away, I picked up knitting. Knitting has changed my life in so many ways. Over the 5 years of knitting, it has introduced me to new people, experiences, and shopping. There are times when I’ll take a break from knitting. However, I always find myself returning to it when I get stressed.
With the play and everything, I have returned to knitting. Since the theme of the year to “finishing things” I have pulled out those previously abandoned things and started working on them. Who knows how many I will finish, but I’m going to try.
