Occasionally, you will have a long stretch between projects. You are bored and restless without your knitting. So, what should you do?
Knit for charity!
It's cheap, it's simple, and it does good. Makes you feel good too. I don't regret the sweater I made for charity, even though it gave me a lot of grief, or the hats, scarves, baby outfits and blankets that have gone there. Hopefully they helped someone, and they were a great learning experience for me too.
