Knitting is low-tech fun for everyone

Many people think knitting is just for girls, but that is not true. They say this because they may have seen grandmas in the movies knitting, so they think only old ladies knit. Knitting is actually very interesting if you think about it. You can make so many different designs.

Knitting positively impacted me because many kids are more into all the high-tech stuff instead of actually doing something that does not require technology. They are getting too little activity and, basically, they are just either sitting there watching some cartoons, or they're thinking, "I'm too busy." This is not for everyone.

I have knitted different types of scarves in many different patterns. Once you get the hang of knitting, you can start making your own patterns. I created the snake-weave scarf, and I based it on the pattern of the basket-weave scarf because I thought that would look cool.

My mom has seen me with a lot of free time so, she asked me if I wanted to do this. I saw her knit a lot, I thought it was cool to knit because you know there will be a really good outcome, even though it might take a long time.

I am so glad I started!
