Long distance relationships are not easy, especially when communication is extremely limited. So the advice that I got was “STAY BUSY”. Stay busy? I felt like I was pretty busy as it was but then I realized I wasn’t as busy as I needed to be. So a few days ago I decided to start a new hobby, knitting.

A few years back my sister-in-law somewhat showed me about knitting. Because I was much younger at the time she never took me seriously and I don’t blame her because I didn’t even take it that seriously either. Long story short I forgot the few things I learned and I had bought the materials thinking “Well, now I have no excuse not to learn.” So off I went to Youtube to look for some lessons.

What was to unfold I never expected, I can’t stop knitting. Its so much fun! I’m currently working on a scarf for my mom, and I haven’t stopped since day one. I love it! I have so many ideas of projects planned. My favorite is a blanket for my sweetheart and I to use when we watch movies. Scarfs, scarfs, and more scarfs. I love scarfs and I can think of a variety of colors to use! Can you tell I’m excited? I have several plans for this new hobby that I hope to accomplish in the near future.
