Picking Up Needles
A wonderful feeling comes over me when I slip yarn around a knitting needle, even if I haven't knit in days or weeks (maybe more so the longer it has been since I knit). It is connecting with an old friend, the familiar feel and automatic movements made without thought. Knitting relaxes me and helps keep me grounded. Knitting a favorite pattern adds to that warm feeling and memory.
