How to relax when you craft all day.....

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.
As you know, I do a lot of craft for my shop, so when it comes to relaxing in front of the t.v., I'm still working!
I recently came across a site for a weekly 'yarn along' where you can link what you have been knitting or crocheting during the week, along with a book you might have been reading.
I liked the idea, and wanted to participate, but as I said, I needed a project to relax, and not have a time frame. 
I don't do a lot of knitting, so chose it over crocheting, and
decided to 'just knit' :)
I started by casting on  35 stitches...
...and proceeded to do some  garter stitch, which is sometimes referred to as the knit stitch .... date, I  STILL have 35
I haven't worried about my tension, correct needles, or wool - my aim is to relax, and I'd
encourage anyone wanting to try knitting, to just 'give it a go' .... you can worry about your tension, etc. later :)

Before I go, thank you to 'Jellybeankahler' for signing on as a Follower.... I hope you enjoy the journey :)
Have fun, and happy crafting,  Jenny


  1. I had't knitted for years but I started again last Winter. This Winter I am going to take up spinning again, my sister gave me two alpaca fleeces to play with. Enjoy your knitting. x

    1. Sounds great, Jackie. I tried, and enjoyed spinning when I was at high school. Down south, we definitely had the weather for winter woolies :) Happy crafting, Jenny

  2. Your advice is perfect - love that you have maintained the same number of stitches.
    Enjoy just knitting.

    1. Thank you for the compliment about my advice being perfect! Many who know me would probably run the other I appreciate your dropping by, and leaving a comment. I hope you enjoyed the visit :) Happy crafting, Jenny
