Meditation is supposed to be pretty good for us. It's supposed to reduce stress and lower blood pressure. Of course, a purring cat can do that for us, too, but there's always the litter box issue.
But, did you know that knitting rates high on the meditation meter? It's been proven. You can look it up.
All summer long we've been working on this same scarf. Inch after inch, mile after mile. We've only stopped now because we've run out of yarn and really there is a limit to how long a scarf can be and still be useful. We know the joys of simple, repetitive knitting. It's only a 4 row repeat that is easily memorized. Pick a luxury yarn and you have this amazing tactile experience.
And that brings us to the next point. After all that mindless knitting and after all the relaxation we got from the process...... after all the calming and soothing and quieting of our mind, we now have a pretty darn nice scarf to give someone.
Now that this scarf is complete, we'll just start another.
