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.
