Reasons to be cheerful

….Actually, reasons I like knitting, but who is watching anyway ?

  • It keeps my hands busy, and helps me to resist the urge to choke the living shit out of people that irritate me
  • I’ve got something more tangible and permanent to waste my money on, instead of just drining it
  • I always have pointy things handy
  • I always have scissors handy
  • You can’t smoke and knit, or eat and knit, so temptation is further from me
  • I’ve always got something to do on the train
  • I can make myself things I could never buy in the shops
  • It freaks people out to see a young person practising such an arcane art
