In this post I will focus on why it’s great to start up a hobby.
It’s easy to get bored during these times at home. Maybe you even feel unproductive as you scroll through your phone or watch episodes and movies back-to-back. Our brains like to move, so of course we can beat ourselves up when the day is unfruitful. It’s the little things that make us feel productive, such as crafts or fun projects we work on step by step. Knitting and crocheting are great ways to keep your mind busy, because they’re easy to learn, it relaxes the mind and the body, and it’s a good pastime while you’re off from school or work.
Knitting and crocheting may seem difficult to learn, but in actuality, it’s not that bad! You just need to find the right materials and the right source of learning. Once you get the hang of the weaving and the movements, it’s downhill from there.
Crochet or knitting also relaxes the mind and body greatly. After a long day, I find that crafting is my happy place. I love working on a project next to the fireplace, watching a relaxing show with my family and crocheting or knitting away. Time passes so quickly too! So if you’re looking for something relaxing but brain training at the same time, knitting and crocheting are for you.
As previously mentioned, it’s a wonderful way to pass the time when you’re not busy with work. It doesn’t take tiring effort either as other crafts do. You just need to stay on that steady pattern and before you know it, you’re done!
There are many reasons why knitting and crocheting are such popular crafts, and why it’s been something passed down from generation to generation. And don’t get me wrong, it isn’t necessarily easy. It takes time, patience, effort, and space. But trust me, it’s all worth it! And that’s why it’s awesome to cultivate a hobby. It helps you relax and it also gives you something to do while at home. Knitting and crocheting are great for that reason!
Coming soon! I’ll be working on a series to teach how to knit and crochet. We’ll focus on the basics first. Then we’ll start advanced projects, and we will have fun along the way! We’ll work on beanie hats, then scarves, then blankets, and finally we’ll get into pot holders and coasters. I hope I can teach you all how to knit and crochet!
