“It is a well-known fact that knitting is a sparkling form of entertainment, as spiritual as yoga, as relaxing as a massage, and as funny as Erma Bombeck trapped in a PTA meeting.”
Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
I have a dear friend who can think and talk and knit. I’m always impressed. I can knit and that’s it, any attempt to engage in witty , or even not witty conversation at same time is bound to end in tears, well dropped stitches to be less dramatic but you get the gist.
Anyway, today was intended to be a gentle reminder of how knitting might help you achieve a tranquil meditative state and possibility of feeling better about yourself by sending those knitted squares to a deserving cause. But an internet wander found the Yarn Harlot whose fur pickups – don’t you love autocomplete – ferocious passion for knitting may also make you smile. An unexpected bonus of laughter therapy. Where to start, Yarn Harlot has written much. A good a place as any so they say to start at beginning so here blog from day 1.
For those of you who miss a video here it is. Think of it as multipurpose not only educational but slow tv too.
Have a good day
