Will you please post a project link when you’ve finished your sons cardigan? I love seeing Nordic knits
I get the not wearing anything totally. I don’t wear anything knitted, I live in Spain so not much need for warm things.
I do love knitting though and use it to make new neural pathways after an illness (I’m fine now). My hands are so steady after I’ve been knitting, and if I don’t knit for a couple of days I really notice a difference.
I make shawls and I love different stitch patterns, and the pretty yarn of course.
Most of the time I either gift to friends or they give me the yarn+postage cost. You don’t make any money from it, but that’s not the point for me, I’m just happy someone loves it and wear them.
Because I was getting a bit of a cupboard full a friend suggested I put my shawls on Etsy. So I thought why not and put a few on. Now there’s a lovely lady in Germany swinging round in one of them. Maybe you could do that if you are not using the things you make?
