Created By: Sara Borgard

A couple years ago, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I didn't know anyone who knitted so learning, for me, came solely through books and online videos. I have never been a patient person, but, I had such a strong desire to learn, I gave it my all. It was very frustrating in the beginning, and I have very little patience. If I don't get something quickly, I usually give up. However, knitting is something I am passionate about. I kept trying and trying, taking the smallest steps at a time because if I even thought of anything more complex, I'd get too overwhelmed! Finally, one day, it all clicked. I had done many small projects and had become so familiar with the knit and purl stitch, I felt totally ready to move on. And, I did.

In the past, as I stated above, if I didn't catch on to something right away, I'd give up. Knitting, however, has taught me to be patient in learning new things and not to give up. If I can just take things one at a time and continually practice what I know, I know now I will get beyond the frustration and be able to accomplish my goals. It has secured my sense of creativity and taught me I can do whatever I want, if I just keep at it.

Not only is knitting an art I absolutely love, but, just recently has also become a source of income! I am a stay at home mom with a husband who works 40 hours a week and goes to school. It gets really stressful at times, but knitting has helped keep me sane, and, has helped generate much needed income. It has also helped me re-gain my sense of independence that had become lost in being a mommy and housewife. Knitting is something I enjoy, something I can do even in the smallest time slots such as the kids taking a bath, a nap, or waiting at the doctor's office. Not only is it something I can do that I enjoy for myself, but it has benefited us all through the money it has generated.
