VCE exams, uni assessments, job applications, full-time jobs, wedding planning, raising the kids. These have been the most stressful times of my life and I’ve never handled stress well. The only way I can relax or as my daughter use to say “stress less” was by knitting, even when I was a teenager contemplating what my future would be like once high school finished and knitting was considered an “old day thing”. It still is according to my now grown daughter.
She doesn’t mind it so much now that I’m knitting several booties and blankets for her baby, my grandbaby.
