The creative bug is back and I’m ready to start knitting and crocheting. Time has a way of slipping by fast without recognition. About time I stop and realize it I’ve missed opportunities to grow as a wife, a mother and as a yarn crafter. Mindless activities take control and before I know it I’m a Lazy Lima Bean. So today I wrote a list to remind myself why I knit and later I’ll write a list on growing as a wife and mother titled, “What I can do to get out of this FUNK! Oh help me please!” Some of the list you may relate to and other reasons may not be listed. And if they’re not listed please feel free to share your reasons with the rest of us🙂 I’d love the feed back.
I Knit for Fun

I Knit for Love

I Knit for Peace of Mind
I Knit for a Healthy Hobby
I Knit because I Can
Thanks for listening and Happy Knitting!
My domain name doublepointedlove derived from my love of knitting. My first knit project was a pair of socks for my husband in which I had to use 5 DOUBLEPOINTED needles. If you ever worked with them it’s quite intimidating. I was determined to make these socks and when I finished I fell in LOVE. Now since then I have created scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters, whatever I could. I did this for many years and wanted to try something new. Now I’m creating paper flowers for photo backdrops and crepe paper flowers for bouquets. Hot glue burns and paper cuts are now my reality. I have made this my full time job and enjoy every second. And though my focus has changed since I started with this domain name I won’t change it because, it reminds me of how my love of art started from a set of double pointed needles!

I agree with all of your creative knitting reasons. Although I don’t knit, I do crochet and love crocheting along with others. So I Crochet for lasting friendships
For friendships is a great one to add. I only have my mom to crochet with and I love how it brings us together. I would love to make crafting friends as well so, “it’s nice to meet you Tracy”. My next blog will show me and my moms first finished crocheted project. It was a lot of fun.
