Day Thirteen

Knitting, knitting knitting... Oh how I love to knit!

As a kid both my grandma and mom had taught me to knit and crochet but I didn't stick with it. Several years ago I wanted to learn again so a dear friend of mine (lap dog knits) taught me. We knew it would be just the thing I needed to pass the time and keep my sanity while recovering from the accident.

Not only did I learn but I fell in love with it and haven't stopped knitting since.  I am so thankful for the calm it brings my body and mind. I love the sounds of my needles clicking quietly together at the end of a day and the feel of yarn passing through my fingers. I always look forward to starting a new piece with excitement and enjoy the quiet patience that sets in while working on it. Of course I love the gratification of a completed project that I can wear, gift or do whatever with, so fun!

I am so thankful for knitting and the Joy and Peace it has brought me over the years. Thanks Kyle!
