Knitting is a great way to de-stress and bring out your creativity. If you're short of things to do (and are getting enough exercise!) it's well worth it; you can make unique items for less than the cost of ready-made. There are lots of how-to videos on YouTube.
The following of my original knitting patterns are available to download from Lovecrafts.com (some are free!) They also sell yarn and needles so you can get the whole project started.
