A few months ago, I wrote a post about one of my latest obsessions in the hopes of starting a series on my blog talking about my favorite things. For today’s blog post, I thought I would post about another one of my latest obsessions, knitting. I’m basically a grandma at the age of 20 but in the last few weeks, I’ve been knitting non-stop.
Knitting- My Latest Obsession
My grandma taught me how to knit when I was probably 10 or 11. I was not very good and I was very impatient so I didn’t stick with actual knitting for too long. Instead, I got one of those looms that basically lets you cheat and knit a scarf way easier and quicker. I cranked out scarves like no tomorrow on that thing until I got bored of it and left it to gather dust in the corner.
After almost 10 years, I’m getting back into knitting and it has become my latest obsession. I had the urge come out of nowhere about a month ago to knit. I hadn’t picked up needles and yarn in years, but it was the only thing I wanted to do. When I finally had the chance to go to Michael’s, I picked up a ball of yarn and a set of needles and got knitting away. I finished my first scarf in about a week so I headed back to Michael’s to pick up more yarn because they were having a sale. Now I’ve made 3 scarves in the last month and I’m going to finish another one before Christmas.
I’m so glad I’ve picked up this hobby again because I’ve made several homemade Christmas gifts, which always are the best kind of gifts. Also, I love being able to have something to do while watching Netflix or Youtube videos. It’s hard for me to just sit and watch for awhile because I get antsy. Being able to knit makes me feel more productive while I’m watching TV or videos. If you’re crafty and are looking for a new hobby in the new year, look into knitting.
Thank you for reading all about my latest obsession! I hope you enjoyed!
