"The motion of knitting isn't all that different from the motion of plugging away at your smartphone all day. Except knitting promotes focus, and the phone promotes distraction." -Humans of New York
“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
― Elizabeth Zimmermann
Sounds about right!
The staff at CEY spent an afternoon last week learning to crochet to make a Big Bad Granny throw in Liberty Wool. Now, we'd like to give our throw to one of our loyal LYSs.
Visit the blog and leave a comment there to nominate your LYS to win. If you're a LYS, tell us about the CAL fun that you're planning to be entered.
Entries will be accepted until 8:00pm eastern time on Sunday, February 14th. The winning LYS will be chosen by RNG and announced on Monday, February 15th.
Should you knit? The answer is of course - YES! psychologytoday.com/blog/open-gent…
