knitting calms me and fulfills my need to have a creative outlet. I sit here at work and look forward to perhaps having an hour or so of knitting in the evening. I grew up in a musical and visual art household and was always encouraged to express myself through those mediums. for a period of over 10 years starting in my early 20s I didn't do any art as a hobby - either because of lack of money, lack of time, or depression - or all 3 combined. I didn't start knitting until I was a month shy of 34 years old, but I'm so glad I did! I love color and texture and it still amazes me that a little string can turn into something fun/useful/interesting.
