Knitting to Relax

This week's blogger topics include something about my work outside Etsy OR what I do to relax. Well, my day job is certainly not what I do to relax. Knitting probably relaxes me more than anything and I liked to spend some time each day knitting. Some knitting projects that involve reading from a graph or complex patterns aren't as relaxing for me something familiar or simple.
Crafting 365, Day 346, Custom neck warmer
Crafting 365, Day 341, 4 felted bags
I've made so many of my cabled neck warmers and these little bags, that I can really relax when I knit them. I'm working on a new project right now which I'll be posting in a few days.

The neck warmer is a recent custom order and the beautiful buttons came from this shop on Etsy.

did you actually knit those little bags? Or am I just being silly - bec I don't see how you could possible knit that small! But what do I know? Not much about knitting!

Those are such gorgeous pieces!!! I used to find knitting really relaxing, when I was pregnant with my son. Now, those few times I've tried it recently, I've found that knitting involves a lot of "No, don't touch that!" so I've decided to try it again when the kids are a little older!

knitting was stressful and slow for me for a while...but I've found my groove now and I really enjoy it too. It's a nice change of pace from sewing at the machine, although I love both. Knitting does have the advantage of being able to come with me on road trips though--can't do THAT with a machine!!

At first I thought the littlfe purses were hats. My dd loves those little snug knitted hats. I browsed your site and the wristlets are very cute and recycled as well!

yes, they are knitted and then felted or fulled. I forgot to mention that detail in my post.
