While most celebrities probably have extravagant and expensive hobbies, these 5 stars have revealed that they enjoy something much simpler and budget-friendly as a way to unwind and even get creative. These 5 celebs love knitting and often sit down to work on their latest knitting projects. Some have even made hats, scarves and other pieces, and say they find the hobby to be very relaxing and even therapeutic.
Jennifer has attempted several knitting projects and has been enjoying the hobby: “I`ve been knitting a lot lately. My make-up artist gave me a basket of needles and yarn as a present and I just said, `Alright, I can do this. I did it in school.` Now, I’m loving it. I`ve knitted a couple of hats and a couple of scarves and I’m starting on my first poncho.”
Meryl likes budget-friendly hobbies and regularly sits down to knit: “I live a very unspectacular life. I love to sit on my chair in the living room and knit. Or I cook or read a book. I’m a very frugal person.”
Ryan learnt to knit on the set of ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ and says he finds it incredibly relaxing. He commented: “If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf.”
According to reports, Sarah Jessica Parker loves to knit in between takes on set: “As soon as shooting stops, Sarah’s back to her knitting. She’s introduced lots of other people to it – everyone is hooked.”
Amanda knits because she feels better multi-tasking: “I have to do lots of things at the same time. It’s an obsessive-compulsive thing. So when I’m on the elliptical machine, which I do almost every day, I have to be knitting, playing Sudoku and listening to things.”
