I knit most days for an hour or so and find it very enjoyable. I learned to knit from a book about 30 years ago, but my knitting has only really taken off in the last couple of years, since I have had more time due to being half time pensioner.

So far I have knitted mainly socks, ponchos and cardigans. I also enjoy crochet and recently crocheted a pair of slippers. I have already found Knitting Help a real blessing.

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
