Eating my words

Finding my bliss

I may have to eat my words. Now it’s clicked for me I suddenly get it. I understand. Knitting is suddenly the meditative relaxing activity I swore blind that it couldn’t possibly be. Admittedly I’m still doing my garter stitch scarf and don’t know how to purl. I want to finish the scarf and get it out of the way so I know it’s all ready to wear next winter when I have to walk on those miserable wet days then I will learn to purl. So that will come and with it will come the challenge of learning something new, the struggle of getting it wrong before I get it right and the adventure of learning from my mistakes. But for now it’s incredibly meditative to pick up my scarf and do a few rows here and there as I find a few free minutes. I hope that eventually purling and fancy things like shaping will become as meditative and relaxing to me and I’m sure with practice they will. I humbly admit I was wrong about knitting – I just may have found my bliss.
