~Knitting and crocheting~

Reasons to start knitting/crochetting:

1) It's calming
2) It doesn't require lots of space.
3) it doesn't cost a lot (compared to sewing or other crafts)
4) You can make awesome stuff
5) Some people use it as therapy
6) You can set aside a project and get back to itwhenever you feel like
7) you can have more that 1 projects running at the same time

Well i started knitting recently and i haven't finished my first project yet cause i bought expensive yarn and i didn't expect that  a scarf would need 5 balls of yarn (i only bought 3)

But i loved knitting. Although I discovered it's not as easy as i thought... Well,  ordered a whole lot of needles in different sizes from ebay and crochet hooks. And tommorow i'll got buy lots of cheap acrylic yarn in various colors to start making my own little amigurumis (i have to buy stuffing as well), scarfs etc

Amigurmi: (crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. 

Well what got me into knitting are these beautiful stuff i see online:

  1. Hi there!
    Since you started knitting recently,i should firstly wish you good luck!I'm sure you're gonna find your new "hobby" at least alluring ;)
    Regarding your accidental buy..don't bother to ask the seller what suits you best!i would also advice you to ask other people who already work on knitting,they tend to know what's better and cheaper.Finally,i could suggest e-bay,but i don't know if it's effective for your case (transportation cost etc..).
    Anyway,have fun both of you and keep up your good work with your blog!
