Knitting has rythym
Created By: Mary Bailey Q

I remember learning to knit when I was in my teens. I taught myself the knit stitch and thats all I did. I didn't bother with the purl! I wasn't very patient with it though. For me it too forever to do a row. It wasn't until 40 years later that I tried it again. That's when I realized it has a! rythym to it. A gentle flow of the yarn and needles in your hands. It became so relaxing for me and I didn't want to put my projects down! I started making scarves and found I could do that quickly and effienciently. It became my "peace" in our household. I bought yarn every chance I got, until my storage area looked like the aisle in a store. I would knit and sometimes crochet. It was soothing time for me. I gave away many hats, scarves and afghans to friends and family. And when I ran out of people to give to, I gave the rest to the homeless shelter. My daughter, who works in an office, loved to ask me to do another scarf for her. And I loved doing them. I learned a lot last winter knitting & crocheting. I learned I could complete a project. I learned new stitches and yes, I did learn to purl of course! I learned that there is a world of people out there who knit too. At every waiting room I sat in last year, someone would come up and ask about my project or share an idea they had.

My storage area is stocked again this year. And I am already starting a new scarf for my daughter at her request. I look forward to this winter and new projects. I ready to begin again the rythym of my knitting.
