While studying abroad in London I had the privilege of learning how to knit. What started as a fun bonding project with my flat mates turned into a full-blown hobby! Knitting is very relaxing and helped with my writing (of the poetry variety). It gave me a space to think, without the added headache of running up the water bill, (my shower was my original thoughtful spot). That said, I went to a new Hobby Lobby in my area a few days ago to get a break from Michaels. I will say, Michaels’ craft section is heftier than Hobby Lobby’s but I managed to walk away with a few things.
