Why knitting? You might ask. For me, there’s something calming about the repeated knits and purls or the alternating knits and purls. The repetitiveness of the task silences the daily mind chaos brought about by work, the stress of being stuck at home away from family, and it gives that comforting silence even when you’re alone. I guess for some, it would be a different hobby or craft that gives them these but for me, I found it in knitting.
The last time I’ve sewn something (except for the occasional clothes repair) was a pillow case. It was hand sewn, too. That was way back 12 years ago. I came to the big metro with very few things it could actually fit in one big luggage. And since I needed pillow cases, and I had scrap fabric big enough for one, I went ahead and sewed one instead of buying it from the mall which was, to me, that time, very expensive.
So I was really excited to sew something a bit more complicated than stitching two ends of the fabric. LOL!
