I work on a computer building websites on a daily basis. I enjoy my job but suddenly I felt the need to make something tangible.
Even though the reason why I picked up this hobby in particular is unexplainable, I happened to become interested in knitting.
After overcoming the difficulty in learning something previously unknown, I started enjoying it very much.
The first finished project – even if small – has been a reward, but the making is magical per se.
The repeated movements create a sort of ritual, reinforced by an extremely wide choice of soft yarns and beautiful colours. There is an entire world behind the word knitting.
It’s amazing how written instructions – often for me mostly mysterious – slowly become garment. And what a joy to say “I made it”.
