Five Reasons Every Child Should Learn How To Knit

I actually came across an article online earlier today that initially prompted me to write today's post. The article is titled, Five Reasons Every Child Should Learn How To Knit by Beth Searle. Beth Searle's article is well written and she points out great reasons why every child should learn how to knit. Click on the link above to read Beth Searle's article.

I wish I'd first learned how to knit when I was a child because I really wanted to learn how to knit as a child/tween. But no one in my family knew how to knit... Nor did any close family friends know how to knit that I know of back then either. 

We also didn't live near any yarn stores when I was a child/teenager. Additionally, the internet didn't exist back then either, so accessing YouTube for knitting tutorial videos just wasn't an option. So, I never learned to knit as a child.

When I left for college after high school, the idea of learning to knit fell by the wayside with my college studies and other activities. It wasn't until I turned 44 years old that I actually took up learning to knit. In 2014, I'd made a New Year's Resolution to learn a new hobby that year and that hobby was learning to knit.

I am so happy that I finally began knitting 3 years and a half years ago!! I love knitting and I am still learning so many things. Who knew I'd love knitting this much??

When did you learn to knit or crochet? Who taught you to knit or crochet?

Lol, 11 Ways Knitting Is Actually Drugs!

I recently came across a funny article on Buzzfeed titled, 11 Ways Knitting Is Actually Drugs by Loryn Brantz. 

I enjoyed reading the article and found it humorous. 

Have a great day and happy knitting!
