I give myself reasonable challenges.
I think I could take up knitting almost as much as I crochet...
That's a toddler scarf on the left, a beanie on the needles (we'll see how that turns out, I'm making it up as I go), one of the two balls of wool I have (a two-strand something-er-rather, I split it down from a 4-strand), and my empty coffee cup (a morning staple in my diet).
I el-oh-ve-ee the way this chunky 100% wool yarn knits up. It's so fast and particularly enjoyable.
I think those knitting needles are about 7mm. They don't actually have any number on the sides or ends, they're only the biggest I could find in Mum's collection.
