I like to knit. It is a great way to productively fill the little snatches of time in life that would otherwise escape. I hate to waste time. Knitting is relaxing. I don't worry if it takes me a year to finish something (though I would like to complete my new great niece's knitted item while she is still a baby). The hat you see me modeling in this picture is a wool hat before I felted it. "Felting" is when you wash a wool item to purposely shrink and mat the fibers.
This is the same item after I felted it and rolled the brim!! I have enough yarn to make a second one.
