I enjoy knitting because I find it relaxing and soothing. If it burns up calories than I must have very slender wrist. lol
I'm at the point now where I cannot sit down and watch tv without knitting.
I took a few classes at my LYS in the beginning and I'm glad I did. That's where I learned how to knit socks from the Toe Up. I never would have figured it out on my own with just a book.
I also enjoy the shopping for yarn, buying knitting books and magazines but most of all I enjoy the process of knitting.
I usually have at least two projects going at a time. The easier one I knit while watching tv. The more involved the pattern is the more I need to concentrate and the tv will be off so I don't lose my place in the chart.
I just Love it ALL.
