Knitting for the Sake of Knitting

It’s so encouraging to see all the comments you’re sending my way, because I’m able to learn so much about what makes you tick!

After reading some comments today, it made me stop and think about how similar we all are as knitters, and at the end of the day, we just want to knit for the sake of it.

One of the most popular posts on this blog is Seed vs. Moss Stitch. It’s one of the most basic go-to stitch patterns around. It’s easy to learn and has many practical uses. Clearly, this proves that sometimes simple is just plain better! Click here to watch the video.

Learning new stitches and being inspired is what keeps us engaged, but there’s something to be said about the simple act of picking up our needles and experiencing the yarn as it glides through our fingers.

There’s something almost meditative about the rhythmic motion of our hands while we knit.

Sometimes, it’s finding just the right stitch, paired with the right needles that keeps us engaged for hours.

Those are the magical moments.

So just for today, put those “should do’s” aside, pick up your needles and knit for the sake of it.

A synergy of stitches...
