- The creation of a beautiful piece out of a few woolen threads is a joy in itself!
- It puts your mind in a peaceful state, temporarily away from the routine chores of life.
- The very thought of draping it around a loved one brings in so much happiness.
- But yes, it does require lot of patience
I had learnt this art when I was in school. Though I didn’t get much time to polish my skills, I did remain fond of it. Now, that I am at home and have lots of time at my disposal, I have turned to it again. This time, I can experiment more, and definitely have more patience to practice it. I started it by buying yarns of wool in “delicious” colors, and the needles to go with them. It was a great experience buying them as it made me feel like a skilled housewife !! Of course, the actual process of knitting is much more difficult than the idea itself, but I did manage to accomplish it and made a few items. And yes, the sense of achievement was quite similar to what I felt when I had written my first fully functional “C” program in college!
