Remember the early days when knitting was just for fun, and casting on for the very first time was the portal to a soft and fuzzy world of creative possibilities unfurling right at your fingertips. Well, now that the holiday stress is far behind us, so are the deadlines that involved knitting fast and furiously. Take some time to relax and reconnect with your knitting, try a few smaller projects that capture the lighthearted side of life and make you smile.
