Up early?? On a holiday morning?! Weather made hash of my plans today, so instead I tried to think seriously about my knitting. It’s a hobby, but also part of my mental health routine – or, self care. There are knitting themed gifts emblazoned with “I knit so I don’t stab people” – and that is true in many ways. There’s something about knitting 100 yards in an evening that can really take the edge off when nothing else is going right or getting done. But if I get frustrated with knitting –and it does happen!– then it is a double whammy.
