Pink has taken up a new hobby – knitting.

The singer is currently taking some time out from her music career to care for her eight-week-old daughter Willow Sage – her first child with husband Carey Hart – and has been taught by one of her friends how to make her own clothes with wool.

Pink wrote on her twitter page: "My friend @KerriKenney taught me how to knit this past week. this scarf i'm working on is so good i may just slap her with it. on her face. (sic)"

The 'So What' hitmaker has been enjoying every aspect of motherhood so far, although she admits parenthood has had a negative effect on her time-keeping.

In another tweet, she said: "I haven't been on time in 6 weeks."

Earlier this month, Pink revealed she and Carey had named their daughter after an "unbreakable" tree because they liked the meaning behind the moniker.

The 31-year-old pop star said: "It is the most flexible tree and nothing can break it - no wind, no elements. It can bend and withstand anything. I love that sentiment and I want that for her.

"Sage is cleansing and sacred and it sounds great with Willow. It doesn't hurt that her last name is Hart - flexible, cleansed heart."
