I’ve had the joy of engaging in several needle arts hobbies for decades, like cross stitch, rug hooking, knitting, quilting and sewing. They have all fed a part of my soul that required a daily dose of creativity, mostly the kind of creativity that was also practical. “I’ll make something I need, but I’ll make it beautiful!”
Knitting and sewing garments, are the two crafts which allow a lot of freedom to alter the pattern to best suit the wearer in terms of fitting and decorative elements. Who can ask for more? Choose the yarn, the color, and decorative details, and you’ve got your favorite wearable ever!
