Remember when I blogged about knitting two years ago, well I just got back into it again. There’s something about the winter months I think that make me want to snuggle up and knit. It’s weird, but I definitely don’t hate it. It’s so relaxing once you get into the hang of it and it keeps my hands busy. The nights when my anxiety is bothering me, I just plop on the couch or the bed, flip on Netflix, and knit away. It’s the best distraction and seriously calms my nerves. Partly due to the fact that I can’t scroll through emails or fiddle with my phone and mostly due to the fact that it’s a simple, repetitive motion. I don’t even make anything, I’ve been knitting to the end of the yarn and then unraveling it all to use the yarn again.
When I was in Tampa, I bought more yarn and new needles and camped out in my favorite spot in the entire house: the porch! My mom has it so nice out there. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day.
The porch is screened in so it does get chilly out there at night (relative to Florida, of course). I wore an oversized, ultra comfortable Hanes sweatshirt and my favorite monogrammed pajama bottoms.Talk about perfect!!!
Teddy loves the porch too, look at that bum!

Anyone else into knitting as much as I am?!
