Knitting is my favorite craft. I find it more challenging than crocheting. I have been knitting for about 8 years. I learned to crochet at a very early age but my memories are of odd shaped squares. I have come along way since then. Casting on was a challenge for me but I have expanded my skills by learning different methods and larger projects. Sweaters and socks are my current projects.
Knitting fills my need to be creative and is a great stress reducer while completing my degree this spring. I usually have a project with me like a security blanket and now have several items on needles. Although I have reconciled myself to "only buying yarn for projects". I am a reformed compulsive sale buyer. Oh, the only other tidbit I can relate is really think about knitting items for teens, "Will she or he really like this and wear it?". Yes, knitting is my addiction.
