~ for my health?!?
Well of course I knit so I won't hurt nobody! LOL Basically for my own sanity/peace of mind. :o)
And I am sure you all have heard about the health benefits that knitting has on a person. Knitting actually helps me to decompress from whatever is going on with me at that time. Particularly when I have some solitude knitting time.
~ because I have all this extra time on my hands?!?
Some folks really think we (knitters) are bored out of our minds and that is why we do it.....oh really?!? Trust. We have lots of others things we should be doing! Haha! Knitting is a skill and talent that we actually enjoy doing!
~ because it's cheaper than buying it out of the store?!?
There are so many "knock off" knit versions on the rack that it is actually easier and cheaper to buy it from a retail store. But what non-knitters do not realize is that we do it for the process of it all, and that it is a "one of a kind" item customized just to fit us or others!
Now don't get me wrong, I will buy a sweater and some socks in a minute! Haha!
~ because I must be married....or lonely...or old...or yes....even white?!? *gasp* And any other stereotype you can come up with!
That - is disappointing and very sad when someone would even try to put you in their box because of their limited thinking.
And that is all I am going to say about that!
~ because I don't know what to do with all this extra money I have?!? HA!
Funny how some folks think this is an inexpensive hobby (I know I had thought so at first).
It is like with anything you take on that is enjoyable to do; it can be as pricey as you make it!
And actually having a disposable budget is nice, but we so could be doing other things with our yarn money! Haha!
