My grandmum taught me knitting when I was a kid, but I never really picked it up until I was much older. Now I love it and knit every day. It's great to have something to do with my hands when I'm waiting at the dentist, or taking the metro to work. Also, the delight of the texture of the fibers—the wool, silk, alpaca, angora. And there is the great pleasure of making something with my own hands, investing time in a physical object that represents my fondness for a person.
