2. Knitting


Knitwear is a definite winter must-have. And knitting is not just for grandmothers anymore! I’ve noticed flyers and message boards for knitting clubs in junior high schools, and have wondered what’s made this hobby so attractive to a younger crowd.

According to my cousin, who is an avid knitter, it’s relaxing, and when she finishes a project, she has an incredible sense of accomplishment. I’m clumsy, all thumbs, so this isn’t the hobby for me, but it might be perfect for you! To learn more, check out knitty.com or ravelry.com. Both are active sites for knitters of all ages and skill levels.
