How I didn't become a serial killer

I learned to knit as a child but left it behind when I got busy. In my first faculty position at a university, our department had 2-hour faculty meetings every week - sometimes twice in one week! I noticed I was filling page after page with elaborate doodles - something about the stressful atmosphere and the long hours sitting still was making me crazy. After a year or two mourning those doodle-filled pages that went into the trash, it occurred to me to go back to knitting. I started taking my knitting to faculty meetings, which drew both ridicule and admiration from my colleagues. I found out quickly that it was so soothing I didn't care what anyone said! I could actually focus more on what people were saying because my hands were busy, and instead of filling the trash cans with doodles I started to fill my childrens' closets with hats, sweaters, and toys. Knitting saved my sanity!
