    I don’t just like knitting, I love knitting! It relaxes me and allows me to be creative at the same time, with endless decisions about which pattern to use, which yarn, which needles and best of all, who will I knit for. I give most of my knitting away, and that gives me great joy.

    I like knitting because it’s a whole different world from crochet. It allows me to make things that I just can’t with crochet. And I love learning new things, new stitches, new techniques, always learning!

    I like (love) knitting because it helps me to de-stress and keeps me sane. And at the same time allows me to create wonderful gifts!

  • I like knitting because it gives me a challenge crochet no longer does. It gives me the light weight garments. Crochet gives a heavy fabric. It amazes me the beauty that knitting gives with a fee stitches and their variations you get out of knit and purl.

    I like knitting because I love to give handmade gifts to loved ones ! I also enjoy being in my own little space being quiet,just hearing my needles, feeling yarn,,seeing the color choices, and the heightening of my sense that the joy I feel from creating my own item.

    I learned to knit when I was six years old and have not stopped. I am now seventy years old and still knitting when my hands allow me to, I could not imagine having to give it up, I would stay in a dark corner not liking life at all. Knitting is my life. This contest sounds like a dream, thank for the chance to win, Louise.

    I love knitting because I have a hard time not doing nothing. I started so I could watch TV with my husband and not feel like I was wasting time. Now that I’m older, because most things I make are donated or given away it helps me feel like I am contributing to the world. I also get bored easily and knitting is challenging. I’ve been knitting for years and very seldom do I make a pattern more than once or twice. I am so thankful that I knit

  • Why do I like knitting? Well… knitting is like a therapy… it calms me down, it allows me to stop anxiety… like a meditation. I just had a total mastectomy surgery and knitting takes my mind out of the problem… knitting is sooo great! I am knitting and crocheying (good word??) since I am around 3 years old. I taught myself by looking at my mom’s… it always have been a passion… and I also love the “sensuality” of a good soft yarn. Knitting is my life and passion.

    I like knitting because knitting is not only therapeutic and helps calm my anxiety dramatically but i love creating beautiful pieces for myself and loved ones – learning new stitches and completing different projects is the best feeling in the world! Plus when making garments they are totally customizable so they fit and feel better than anything you can buy at the store. Trying different yarns is also so much fun! Knitting is a big part of my life and a constant learning experience.

    I learned to crochet when i was little but always wanted to knit. As an adult i went to a workshop the library to learn and it clicked! I have been knitting ever since. I really wanted to make my own socks and now I continue to make animals for my kids. I live that a little bit of yarn and time and i have something i made myself.

    I learned to knit as a child and have made things for my 5 children, grandchildren, and friends at church. It is relaxing, stress relieving and I love the results of my work.

    My grandmother taught me to knit when I was six years old, I was the only one who could make things for everyone’s dolls and it was great. Now I love making lace, and giving items away for those who do not, or can not knit. I have many large green garbage bags of wool so I am making doll outfits to donate to out fire department. I am seventy and could not imagine a day without wool.

    I like knitting because it’s therapeutic and there’s nothing as satisfying as taking a ball of yarn and making it into something cool I can then give away as a gift. I love making things for my family.

    I like knitting because it gives me something to do that is both creative and useful. I am disabled and almost complete housebound and I often feel like nothing more than a burden. My knitting gives me an opportunity to create things that are beautiful and useful, things that people will treasure and get use from. I enjoy being able to feel like I’m a contributing member of society, even if my contribution is just a cute pair of socks or a warm blanket for someone I love.

    I promised myself I would learn to knit when I retired and the children were grown. I knew my life would be much less hectic then. I find it very relaxing to pull out my latest project and knit away. It’s also so much fun to wear something I have made and even more fun to see the delight on others’ faces when I give them a hand knit present.

    I love knitting from picking out the pattern, to picking out the yarn to actually knitting the choosen item. It’s my time to relax and forget about everything else. I find it very rewarding to see a project take shape. Most of the items I knit are gifts and I love it when I see the person who gets the gift either wearing it or using it.

    I like knitting because it is one of the only artistic ways that I can express myself while spending so much time in bed and having limited motion,
    AND I like the reactions of the receivers of my gifting of these beautiful knitted items,
    AND I like how many different kinds of yarn there are to create these gifts,
    AND I like learning new patterns and techniques,
    AND I like creating my own patterns in knitting!
