I guess knitting is like blogging for me. So many reasons to quit (for knitting the main reason is my arthritis), but I'm always coming back to it. Last week I started knitting a dishcloth, thinking a small project that I actually would use was more fun than dragging along on a sweater I didn't even like (I frogged the lilac sweater I was working on). It's coming along nicely (I'm sooo slow these days), but it's a bit boring.
Yesterday I couldn't take it anymore: I just had to knit a hat. I love knitting hats. Not sure why, but I do.
Problem is that I hardly ever wear hats (it just doesn't get that cold around here) and I have lots of them already. But then again, it's a hobby. People who paint don't really need another thing to hang on their walls, do they? It's all about having fun, being creative.
So I just grabbed some yarn and started. I'm not even sure if I have enough of this (it was a thriftshop find) to make a hat, I may have to get creative with some other yarn. But I am having fun.
