A little secret....

Each night, with everyone else in bed, I sit downstairs Alone
(two small children and a husband, I don't get much Alone - it's very precious).

And I knit.

And while I am knitting, I sit quietly with no other sounds and watch the yarn
going over the needle and the needle going in and out of the stitches.

And I breathe.

It's usually the only time of day when I am not somewhere other than where I actually am.

So when my friend asked me recently if I meditate - I said yes,
every day for an hour, and I recommended knitting.


  1. lol at the buddha in the cwtch!

    Knitting in silence is sooo meditative and relaxing. I do usually have the tele or at least radio on though.

    Even I do the same...Crocheting and knitting itself is meditate!!!
