Knitting is not just a hobby 

Knitting is really not just a hobby to me. 

Yes I still try and find time to knit with two children, part time job and a house to run! 

It’s relaxing and it’s so easy to do once I got the knack of it! 

I am currently knitting a blanket for the winter it’s not going two bad BUT I am using a mix of thick and thin wool or yarn so it is going to look a bit mix match! 

I have a wide range of needles, yarn/wool and I even have something which makes circles. I haven’t mastered that bit yet! 

It’s relaxing as it can be. I always thought of knitting as a old persons hobby, but it really isn’t. Looking back on the history many people especially young ladies used to knit and sew in the war. I think it gave them something of a destraction from what was going on especially when  it was the war time. 

I started collecting Simply knitting magazine, but I have recently stopped as I can now actually find .any of the knitting patterns I want on line. And the bits were soon adding up! 

But saying that I will still buy the odd magazine about knitting! 

I also think skills like knitting, sewing are dying out. People are so quick to replace a item instead of repair it now a days. I will be hunting for a children’s sewing and knitting kit and will be teaching Bear and Bell these simple life skills. 

What is your hobby or how do you like to relax??
