ON THE NEEDLES

Knitting as Meditation

July 9th, 2014 No Comments

I love to knit.

I like to keep busy and pretty much always have ‘something’ in my hands that I’m fidgeting with, or fussing with.  I find that knitting is a way to relax and let my naturally ‘busy hands’ have at it.

I call it ‘Productive fidgeting’  lol  😉

I have also found that knitting, for me, is a very meditative and relaxing exercise!  Once you get the pattern sorted out and know it well, you can just go with it.

The rhythmic click of the needles, the feel of the yarn moving through your fingers….ZEN!

The last year or so I’ve developed a taste for knitting socks, and I like to think I’m getting pretty good at it.  🙂

Here’s the pair I’m working on right now.
