I love creating things by hand. My hands never seem to be idle. Even if I am watching tv, I always have some sort of project in front of me, whether it be knitting, bookbinding or many other things.
I started knitting while I was in high school one summer. I lived in a very small town, and there wasn't much to do. Every summer I would try to come up with a new activity or skill to learn. (One summer I chose juggling! And by the end of the summer I could juggle pretty well!) Between talking with my Nana over the phone (long-distance) and the amazing website knittinghelp.com, I was able to teach myself how to knit. I stuck with easy things like scarves before I moved on to hats, gloves, and eventually sweaters. This is probably my favorite past times. It's calming (usually..unless I have a confusing pattern!). I find it hard to be angry at…
