What do you love the most about knitting?


I saw this text (http://www.treehugger.com/culture/dont-stop-knitting-its-keeping-you-healthy.htm) and it made me wonder what do other knitters and crocheters think!

I personally really like the idea of being able to do what I need and being less dependent on stores. When I see sawls for 10 euros, or very cheap hats, I try to create awareness for the fact that it’s mathematically impossible that, that hat is made in a sustainable way (through, say, organic wool) and with fair labor conditions. This especifically applies to stores such as H&M (feel free to share your thoughts on this too: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/30/us-hm-sustainability-idUSBREA0T00C20140130).

Besides, it is a great way of applying our creativity to something practical and useful. Also, combating stereotypes about the kind of people who knit (which are not appropriated!) is something that I enjoy through my knitting…

What’s your thoughts on this? what’s your favorite aspects of being able to knit? 🙂




Although I have been quite busy with my knitting (happily busy, I must say!) I just made visit cards for my project to spread around Utrecht and the Netherlands in general:) I’m quite happy with the result… What do you think?
I have already managed to do some small promotion in a very “gezellig” coffee place, and they even alowed me to expose some of my pieces there. It’s time to get creative and learn more techniques!
