I love my crafting – knitting, crochet, sewing. It is my stress relief and a creative outlet, and a way of making cool presents for friends and family (rather than buying them). Making pretty things makes me happy 🙂
I learned to knit when I was about 5 years old, but only seriously picked it up again once I got to high school. It worked fantastically to help with my anxiety, as the repetitive motion is very calming. I started doing crochet once I started uni, as it is much easier to crochet on a train and not elbow your neighbours, and also granny squares are much more portable than a jumper or an afghan.
And cats are little (or not-so-little) balls of awesome. I’m not sure what else can be said on the subject of cats…
