Muggles: Non-magic people (more commonly known as muggles) were particularly afraid of magic in medieval times, but not very good at recognizing it."

—Excerpt from A History of Magic, by Bathilda Bagshot[src]

Sometimes I like to call those who don't understand why we knit or crochet: 'muggles'!

They don't get it.

Why do I knit?

1. I am not a patient person, waiting without something to do is just wrong.
2. I like to multi task, why do one thing when you can do six?
3. I like to create.
4. I love colour, and texture and fabric.
5. Knitting helps me think.
6. Knitting helps me to stop 'thinking'.
7. Knitting allows me to justify watching 'crappy' television.
8. Knitting is therapy!
9. But mostly:.


We all have a need to create and be creative, knitting, weaving, crochet and all those other pursuits are just part of being human?

Plus knitting keeps us warm, wool socks, wool blanket wool scarves!

Go create something beautiful!

Agree! Waiting without knitting, watching tv without knitting, sitting at soccer practice or swimming lessons without knitting, all seem like wasting time otherwise. And the sentiment on the bag really says it all!
