One of the three projects that I have started this year is to knit something. It is going slower than I thought it would, but I am not rushing it. My only regret is that I wish now I had bought better yarn, but I will have to stick to the 12 rolls I bought.
I came across this Ted Talk about knitting and art, which I thought was very interesting. The simple things that we do with our hands can have a chance to be creative. So don't give up the simple.
