Waiting and Knitting
Created By: Stephanie Lundquist

My mother taught me to knit when I was a teenager. I knit top-down sweaters and scarves. I knit a beautiful sweater for my boyfriend who later became my husband. I knit myself a yellow sweater with a honeycomb cable pattern. I wore it as a young adult, and then it shrank, and my young daughter wore it in grade school. I put knitting away for quite awhile, and then I had foot surgery in 2004 and 2005, bunions on each foot. I took up knitting again to be productive while I recovered. I could not drive and spent a lot of time knitting while waiting for rides. My first project was a scarf. I then learned again to make hats. Then I started making baby blankets for the children in my life. I've made potholders for all my sisters. I've made ponchos for myself and my friend's little girl. When my brother was seriously ill in the hospital, I took my knitting and spent hours with him every Sunday at the hospital. I offered to teach him, but he declined.

I am known as a person who goes everywhere with her knitting. I sit in the back during the sermon and knit on Sunday mornings. I keep knitting on the passenger side of my car and knit at long stoplights and waiting for trains. I have at least four projects going at a time usually. I have heard knitting is more therapeutic than yoga, and I believe it. It makes any kind of waiting actually enjoyable.
