I love to learn why and how people started knitting! So many knitters seemed to learn to knit as children, how nice!
I am disabled and in a great deal of pain all of the time, well, this had been going on for years and I was at my wit's end with nothing to do, you can only watch movies and tv for so many years
Well, I prayed and asked God to show me something that I could do that would both occupy my time and help keep my mind off of my pain. Then, in a few days my husband called me from work to tell me that he had gone over to Joann's to see if they had a knitting kit! They didn't have one, so that night we went to Michaels and picked up a kit which contained a little book and a couple of sets of needles along with a few notions, and a ball of yarn and I have been knitting ever since! That was a bit over 2 years ago. I'm pleased to say that knitting is the one and only thing that I've found that both occupies my time and keeps my mind off of the pain! As a result my pain management doc suggests such hobbies to his patients
