Why Knitting Is A Productive Hobby

Jun 8, 2008
Knitting is a very constructive hobby. The funny thing about this craft is that it is not very popular among the youth of today. Why is this, you might ask. Well, I really do not know the answer to that question. However, I can give some reasons why knitting would be beneficial for young and old to learn.

Keep You Busy

For some people, time to relax and enjoy life is not something that they can often afford due to the restraints that their financial situation. This is a very busy lifestyle, and those that have similar situation often forget the simple things of life that can make one happy. On the other hand, there are those who have a little too much time on their hands. Perhaps you are retired or unemployed or, to put it more efficiently, perhaps you are in between jobs. Other reasons for having a lot of time on your hands is if you are in school, but there is a no school period such as winter break, spring break, or summer vacation. If you are looking for things to do to keep you busy, knitting can keep you very busy.

Knitting is a very meticulous craft, and mastering the art of knitting is not as easy as it seems. If you have the patience to learn how to knit, this craft can keep you busy for days on end. You will be doing something that is rather constructive, so you do not need to worry about wasting your precious time. Not only will knitting keep you busy, but it will also keep you out of trouble.

Knitting Produces

Yes, knitting produces. You are probably wondering what I mean from that statement. Well, there exists pastimes and hobbies which do not produce anything but a great time and good laugh or two. Activities such as playing cards and going for casual swims with friends, as fun as they are, do not actually produce anything but pure entertainment for the one doing the activity.

Knitting is different because you can entertain yourself and at the same time produce things such as clothing and place mats and quilts. These things are tangible and can be made use of or even sold for profit. Knitting can be fun, and pay off as well.

So, knitting is not just a hobby that should be past off as an elderly persons craft. No, knitting has great benefits and can do one a great deal of good. So harness your pent up energy and release it by doing an activity that is both productive and constructive.
