I get it, you are a busy professional who barely has time to do all the necessary things in life each day. You go to work with all its responsibilities; you are pulled this way and that. Finally, you get home you make dinner, throw in a load of laundry, clean up after dinner, make sure everyone is fed, clothed, sheltered, driven to where they need to be and is wearing fairly unwrinkled and unstained clothes. When you finally stop for the evening, you plop onto the couch to watch Netflix for a bit and then fall into bed, exhausted and vaguely unsatisfied.
You've been going all day. You got most of the essentials done, but there is something missing.
Then you wake up in the morning, only to have to do it all over again.
All your efforts seem to be used up on things that never stay finished, on things that have to be done over again and again. You really have nothing to show for your effort except a full belly and clean clothes, but that belly gets empty and the clothes get dirty and everyone has to get to where they are going again tomorrow.
Nothing you do stays done and you don’t get to express your creativity.
But, who has time for creativity?
What if I told you that you do.
Yes, you do have time. The fabulous thing about knitting is that it easily fits into those little moments of otherwise wasted time. Because knitting is so portable, it is easy to work it into your crazy busy schedule.
But, where would I find the materials?
I don’t know where to buy really lovely yarn and I don’t have time to be driving around town hunting it down.
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! I have partnered with the amazing Biscotte Yarns to create the perfect Become a Knitter Kit (they are even offering a discount for my students)! It includes everything you need to make the First Steps Scarf — delivered right to your door — you don’t even need to find and unwrinkled, unstained shirt to get them!
But I don’t have the patience to knit!
Oh my goodness, I can relate. I have no patience. In my books, patience is the virtue that makes you swear. THAT is precisely WHY I knit. Knitting helps calm the soul and the fingers. I can’t just sit. I even find it hard ot just sit and listen.
Knitting while listening to a class or watching television actually helps me focus better. Whenever I get stressed, the needles come out. Time flies by in the waiting room. I have better conversations with friends: instead of focusing on what I will say next, I am able to more fully concentrate on what my friend is saying when I am knitting.
