The benefits of knitting

IMG_3048The past 4 weeks have been pretty busy around here. I’ve been working non-stop and I haven’t had much time for knitting. I really miss it! My fingers are craving for some knitting projects. It’s funny how you can actually miss knitting, not only cognitively (like thinking: it would be nice to knit something again) but more like a physical sensation in you hands or your chest: the need to knit.

And honestly, it just feels great to make something by hand, don’t you think?
