Knitting is a great excuse to sit in front of the TV and watch films at the same time,it makes it feel like you are being super productive, not wasting an afternoon goggling at the telly box

I'm pretty indifferent but knitting is fine. I can knit... Fine. Could knit and I'd probably try to teach myself again... It could be helpful in Textiles.

It's liberating. From what I can remember... 5 years ago. O_o
Have you even tried to knit? :yep:

My sister does knitting.
She uses it almost as a calming exercise because its nice to sometimes be able to sit and do very little between all the studying, exams and work etc.
She also does it not just for her own satisfaction but she makes smaller than average hats, mittens and boot/socks that she then donates to a local premature baby unit.

Not my type of hobby but I guess just like any other it is what YOU make it.

How do you know that it's 'boring' or that it's a 'rubbish hobby'? :rolleyes:

Personally I suck at knitting, I'm a perfectionist and found practicing frustrating as I wouldnt make anything perfect :'(
But it does seem rich to call knitting rubbish/boring when a) They haven't tried it and b) They are spending their evening on TSR...

Good and why are you now calling me Crunchie?

The rhyme at the end was nice but it would have been nicer without the attitude... and again please. Say it nicely. :rolleyes:

I used to go to a knitting club in primary school. Haven't really done it since. It was fun at the time though, and I might try it out again one day.

I have tried to knit something when I was very young. Unfortunately my grandmother was not able to teach me in knitting. I have learnt to crochet at least.

Boring, yes, but rubbish? no, its not in my opinion. If someone has the patience and the pleasure to complete the knitting, you get a pair of socks or a pair of gloves. From this point of view, the hobby seems to be useful.

I'm a part of a knitting group at a bookshop and we do the same thing.

I've had to stop knitting, the movements in my hands when I do it irritate my back injury Stupidest reason ever but I have to live with it.

You must be very talented when you was able to taught knitting yourself. I have never learnt that although my grandmather showed me how to knit. Her excuse was that she cannot teach a left-hander (my grandmother is a right-hander).
