I feel like I’ve been knitting this forever. Endless rows, round and round, all the same apart from a couple of increases or decreases every two inches or so. One and on and on….
Vanilla knitting of the best sort really.
There are times when I really want a challenge with my knitting, times when I whack through a pair of fancy socks in a week, times when I have to concentrate so hard on the pattern I’m knitting that I can’t manage to watch TV at the same time. But right now that’s not what I need at all. Right now I need something calm and soothing, something where I don’t really have to engage my brain at all, something where I can pick up where I left off without having to think.
This is when I see the zen beauty of plain knitting. Mindless, soothing, calm and yet at the same time productive. I need to do , make , create, see progress, but all without taxing the old grey cells to much.
In short I need relaxation knitting….
…and girls, this is it!

The joy of knitting. It really makes you wonder how non-knitters manage without it!
