Knitting – a relaxing and fun hobby for people of all ages

Sep 26, 2012 No Comments by

We all need a hobby that can help us relax after work and that can keep us happy when we’ve got some time off from duties, don’t you think? I definitely think so and I’ve found a hobby that keeps me occupied on weekends, rainy evenings and cold winter days. Interested to find out what it is? It’s knitting, a hobby that I can do from home.

If you’d asked me a few years ago I would never have guessed that I would ever enjoy knitting, but I tried it for the first time a couple of years ago, and I discovered that it was both fun and relaxing. I suffered from rheumatic problems at that time, so I couldn’t do sports then, which I can today, so I needed something fun to do which didn’t include too much activity. I started to knit a sweater for one of my kids and realized that I liked it, and that ended up in more and bigger projects and eventually I started creating my own patterns. That took the hobby to a whole new level, it really feels great to make something from scratch. I create a pattern, choose a nice yarn and then I start knitting from scratch. I like the feeling to see something grow, whether it’s a sweater, gloves, a scarf or something else. Nothing helps me relax the way I do when I knit and I really appreciate that!

Have you ever tried knitting? I know it might sound like a hobby for old ladies, but I’m only 29 and I enjoy it big time! If you haven’t tried it already, I really recommend you to give it a chance. You can find easy patterns online to get your started and you can buy some cheap yarn in a local craft store, or online if that is easier for you.

I have to mention that having knitting as a hobby brings a big bonus… You always have nice scarves, gloves and warm socks when the winter comes and that’s great! It’s a lot more fun to dress warm when you’ve created the clothes yourself.


About the author

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
