K is for Knitting
K is for knitting! I most certainly love knitting! I learned the basics of knitting in my early teenage years from my grandmother, but I did not really spend much time with it until I has quite a few years older. I picked it up again in my 20s or maybe early 30s and spent some time with it then, although I put it aside again. I have picked it up again about ten years ago and there has been no looking back! At one point in my life I spent far more time with crochet and now I spend far more time with knitting. Now I almost exclusively knit with a few crochet breaks (although I still very much enjoy both!). I have grown and developed my skills and comfort with all sorts of knitting techniques. I have grown from basic knit and purl stitches (with uneven tension and slow speeds) to creating and designing my own knit patterns. There are still some knitting techniques that I want to learn, but now I have no fear or worries about trying them!
