knit your hearts with an unslipping knot.

Something to ponder
Now, I've been knitting up a storm with the baby things for Miss Willy Nilly and DSIL asked DD had I always knitted. And she said yes but sometimes more than others. And then she asked me why did it seem that I'd been knitting more lately, besides the obvious baby frenzied knitting, and I've been thinking about that quite a bit. So, I've come to some conclusions, at least for me. First, there's just the two of us now, and we like to be home on the weeknights, so there's more time. Next, there's just the two of us now and we have more money. Third, the internet, whether it be blogs, the knitlist, ezines, or now Ravelry has given me much more access to a lot of knitting. And last, I think, is that there are more and more yarns, fibers, and patterns available. When I was pregnant with this DD, there was Grant's down the street and that's where I bought the pattern books and the acrylic yarn. If they didn't carry it, not only didn't I buy it but I didn't even know about it. I don't even remember a proper LYS anywhere or at least anywhere I went. So my question is, what makes everyone else knit?
