For decades I tried and failed to learn, but this August I decided I was going to learn even if I had to take lessons. And I did. And I LOVE it. I've made some scarves, a pillow cover, and mittens. But I could literally sit and knit big squares of stockinette or garter with no goal in mind and still love it. I turn on my true crime shows each night and start knitting. I'm thinking of trying those square needles due to some arthritis in my hands. Naturally I'd wait till I'm OLD to learn lol.
