Something new to practice....
I really enjoy knitting and handwork. I have "produced" so many items because it is so much fun! Now, instead of making something, I am allowing myself just to practice. I want to learn to be a "picker" as well as a "thrower". After doing English knitting (throwing) for many years, I want to learn continental knitting (picking)...(it is faster and easier, uses different finger muscles so hands are less tired!)
I had assumed that I "was what I was", ( a thrower) until I read this post from Knitting Daily.
It is very peaceful just to sit and practice this technique while watching public television series or DVD's from the library. Whether I produce any knitted items or not, I am enjoying this. I think it IS rather like yoga, especially when the pressure to make something fabulous has been removed.[Variegated yarn in "Rose Bouquet" from Patons Decor, wool and acrylic blend.]
