There aren’t many downsides to being a knitter in my opinion! It’s relaxing, you can create lovely jumpers and it’s generally a pretty healthy hobby to have.
However – I do come across little things in day to day life that I’m sure all you knitters and crocheters out there can relate to. Here is my list of knitting issues that I hope you understand!
One: I never have enough knitwear in my wardrobe because when it comes to buying it I think ‘I can knit that’. But do I have time to knit everything? No!
Two: Whenever I see steak on a menu I shudder a bit because I think of steeking.
Three: I get excited if it rains at the weekend. Oh dear – I’ll have to stay in and knit!
Four: If I’m sitting and not knitting I fall asleep. Going to the cinema is difficult.
Five: Non-knitters look disappointed when they open a gift from me and it’s not hand-made.
Six: I can’t watch films with subtitles. Or any film that requires my full attention for that matter.
Seven: I forget to write out the foll words in full – beg, inc, dec, and rem. This will probably cont.
Eight: Driving is wasted knitting time. I need a chauffeur!
Nine: My shoulder hurts.
Does anyone have a number ten for my list? x
