Isn’t it fun to figure out 10 reasons (funny or not) why you do what you do? I’ll list mine, then I’d love to read your #1 reason…let’s go!
Top 10 reasons why I knit:
10 – gives me permission to shop for yarn (and buy it).
9 – puts my mind in a relaxed state so all I think about are my kids issues. *sigh*
8 – leaves my husband guessing who “this” is for.
7 – helps me avoid housework (like I do it anyway) 🙂
6 – if I knit too close to dinner, soon enough it’s too late to make something, ’cause chances are I don’t have everything, and we HAVE to go out.
5 – i have too much yarn.
4 – so I know what everyone is getting for Christmas.
3 – to keep me from being bored in the car as my husband drives me out of town to “just get away.”
2 – so when my children are asked what does your mom do? They can stare blankly back and answer, “umm…she knits.”
