Lucky for me, week five of the Simplify Challenge is to take a breath and relax. Good thing since I was starting to feel the pressure of trying to catch up on this project.
So I'm going to take this week to talk about one of the ways that I like to relax.
Yeah, so knitting should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me. The repetitive nature of wrapping wool around needles and creating stitch after stitch towards the end goal of a completed item is incredibly calming to me. And sure, I do have a tendency to choose super complicated projects that may tend to stress me out at times. In extreme cases, I've been known to throw a particular project across the room in frustration. But overall, knitting is something that I enjoy quite a bit. Like most of my hobbies, I'm keeping my hands and my brain active while creating something tangible at the same time.
