How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I guess what I love most is the whole creative aspect. I love being able to make things. Some day I'd love to try designing my own patterns.
I love the simplicity of knitting. I think it's pretty amazing that you can create so many things with just yarn and two sticks!
I love the fact that it is practical -- I can make things I will actually use.
I love the yarn -- the way it feels, looks (the colors!), and even the way it smells!
I love the mechanics of knitting. I love the feel of the needles and yarn in my hands.
I love how relaxing it is. But, I love that it can be exciting too -- trying new techniques, stitches, and patterns.
I love the fact that it is portable -- you can knit almost anywhere
I love being able to give gifts that I've made with my own hands.
