Wow -- knitting made it Think Out Loud! Thanks for bringing the conversation to the work of our hands.
Knitting has so many facets. There's the touch and feel of different fibers, the many colors that flow through your hands, the smell of good wool, the community of handcrafters, the pleasure of giving, and the satisfaction of having made something beautiful. But, more than anything, knitting is tremendously calming.
I'm a high school teacher. I have about 20 minutes net for lunch, after student issues and that infrequent chance to use the facilities are taken care of. I still make time to knit at least one row of something. It keeps me sane!
Thanks, Emily, for bringing us to Think Out Loud.
