Knitting on a Rainy Day

What else to do on a rainy day other than knitting
With the unpredictable weather of Melbourne, we are set to be faced with a rainy weekend when we least expect it. No one would like to spend their weekend indoors being bored out of their brains. Having experienced several days like this, I have found myself a new hobby - knitting.

Knitting has many positives; it is relaxing to do and rather rewarding once you achieve a product. However, I would like to emphasize the process of knitting. Being a highly enjoyable activity, anyone from all ages could do it. I remember knitting as a child and have commenced once more, making it a permanent hobby.

I am currently knitting a scarf following a rather easy pattern that is producing great results. I have now spent a few hours of miserable weekends working on the scarf. In fact, after a long and tiring day during the week, I find knitting to be quite relaxing. I am enjoying the process and feeling excited about the finished product.

As I previously mentioned, knitting is suitable for all ages. I should perhaps point out that it would be more suitable for young girls to do rather than boys. If you are stuck on coming up with an activity for your children to do on a rainy Melbourne day, get some yarn and a pair of knitting needles and off you go.

If you don't know how to knit yourself, a quick search on YouTube will bring up lots of results in which one can pick up the idea of knitting in ten minutes.

So next time the weather doesn't hold up and you cancel your plans for the day, I suggest to give knitting a try. You won't regret it.

Knitting and crochet are great pastimes, thanks for reminding us in your article and your scarf looks amazing so far!
There is nothing about knitting that makes it unsuitable for a boy, so don't deprive your sons of learning traditionally female skills as they might enjoy it, just as plenty of women enjoy woodwork.
Thanks once again :)
