I'd forgotten just how comforting and relaxing knitting could be.
I started this scarf in January - then put it away unfinished. Yesterday I looked it out, surprised at how little I had accomplished before I gave up. I haven't done any knitting since then. But that has changed! Sitting this morning in the quiet - just knitting, it occurred to me how peaceful and relaxed I felt.
My worries, thoughts, dreams, anxieties were all being knit into this scarf, leaving me somehow comforted and feeling much more relaxed. I had forgotten the peace that comes with creating. The scarf is far from perfect - just like my life. But both are works in progress!
