I am always so happy to see young people take an interest in fiber arts. I've been crocheting for many years and a couple of years ago I got into knitting and am hooked! In the larger scheme of living, it's wonderful for me to know that there are generations out there who will carry the wonderful skills of the needle arts forward into the future.
Everyone creates something. Not all of it's good. But take heart in the fact that you're
creating something that will give you peace and pleasure, will harm no one and your projects will brighten the lives of those around you, and your own life as well.
And remember that not everyone gets it, poor things, and will never know the pride or sense of accomplishment that you'll find every day in your knitting. Pity them! And if they're really mean about it, deck 'em!!! (Just kidding....sort of).
So keep on keeping on with your art form and eventually they'll all probably be hounding you for knitted pieces!
