I have been searching for a hobby for quite a while. While writing is enjoyable and I would certainly say that this is one of my hobbies, it takes a lot of focus, energy, and creativity to string words together to make a piece of writing worth reading.
One of my friends recently was affected by an injury and was restricted to his couch for several weeks. In his bored status, he decided to start knitting. He made the comment to me that I should join him as a knitting buddy. I found it somewhat inspiring and decided to give knitting another try.
I have made many attempts at knitting in the past, but have never accomplished any projects because of my lack of patience required to bring a piece of work to a completed status. This attempt has appeared to be my most successful to date. I have officially finished my first ball of yarn which has yielding three hand knitted dish clothes.
I am looking forward to making a trip to the store to purchase a new ball of yarn and perhaps try making something bigger with a different, more complicated pattern.
