Easy knitting has become the new spinning for me. I used to spin everyday, my wheel was always at the ready and I always had a project going. I'd spin for at least an hour each morning, rather like a meditation. It helped me center myself for the day. And I'd sit down to spin whenever I was between other projects, or while waiting for something to cook on the stove, or any other time I had a few minutes to spare.
Knitting is fulfilling the same function for me now. A good place to start the day, something I can pick up for a few minutes here and there (or even for hours outside), a few rows before going to sleep.
Yesterday felt like the hottest day of the year here ( probably about 80 degrees), I had both fans running all day. There's rain in the forecast for this weekend and into next week. Here comes autumn. Have a great weekend!
