A NEW HOBBY

March 20, 2017

With hectic schedules, endless to-do lists, and oversaturated media, it seems almost impossible to find time to relax in today’s world. Sure, I go to yoga and attend meditation sessions. But that’s just another appointment to fit into my schedule. Which is why I’m actually really excited to tell you guys about We Are Knitters.

I’m one of those people who always need to be doing something with their hands (thanks social media). So I found that knitting is the perfect meditative hobby that’s both productive and soothing. And We Are Knitters embraces this… and with a fashionable spin!

Here’s how it works:

1. You pick an item on their website. I chose this classic sweater, but they have hats, scarves, cardigans, etc.

2. It arrives in the mail with instructions. (Don’t be intimidated, I’m a total knitter noob myself. They’ve got all levels)

3. You knit away! And sooner or later, you’ve got a new cute piece to add to your wardrobe that you made yourself. And you’ve learned a new skill. How rare is that in today’s society??

And while knitting seems like an “old person” activity, it’s actually the ideal hobby for millennials. Which is why We are Knitters is so great. It quenches our need to chill the f*ck out. While keeping us busy and productive. While embracing our love for fashion.

Not to mention, the sweater is really cute! It also makes a great gift for any of your crafty friends or family.

    The sweater is gorgeous and it looks so comfortable ! About 5/6 years ago my sisters and I decided to take knitting and embroidering classes for a full year and we actually had so much fun !
