I go to group therapy and individual therapy twice a week total, and when i go i take my knitting with me, and usually work on it. it helps me keep an even keel when all else is totally insane. the funny part, is my therapist has taken up knitting again after not doing so since childhood, and she's told me that i inspired her to do so. also, the coordinator for my group decided to try learning how to knit, after watching me during group! she did say she got angry with it (she'd bought a book, sigh), so i told her she needed to find a live body, or at least a video, to help, lol.too cool, i say. and of course, there's my sons, lol. my younger told me he was going to be a part time professional knitter, part time paleontologist, part time baker, lol!

How wonderful! You should be very proud!

Now get some knitting needles in that boy's hands - pronto!

I am always happy to hear about other people starting to knit. I think you've done a great thing.
I think a lot of people figure it's tedious but we all know it's wonderful.
Congrats on being an inspiration!

That's awesome. I wonder if my therapist would care if I knit... I wonder if he doesn't want me to burn in hell since I haven't called to schedule in months. I'm definitely about knitting more rather than less, although not specifically to addict others... that's just a nice side effect.

Hi, Minnie, I absolutely love it! I think what you described is going on everywhere to some degree. That might account for the recent increase in numbers of people who are learning to knit or enjoying that craft. Keep right on working where people can see you. Maybe you will start a knitting group and they will inspire others and on and on. . . .

HMMMM...Knitter, baker, AND paleontologist! What a great combination!
Life must be interesting around your son. I hope he follows his dreams to where-ever they may lead.
Happy kitting (and everything else)1!

no lie! life is very interesting around both sons. the older one wants to make baby sweaters to donate! we haven't gotten much past the basics yet tho, so i don't think baby sweaters are in his future just as yet, lol. both boys are very bright, and it's fun trying to keep up with them. that's partially why i decided to teach them to knit. gives them a challenge without taxing my brain too much, lol!

I was knitting while I waited to get my mammogram a couple of weeks back and one of the x-ray techs asked me about my knitting and if I can make hats so I pulled mine out and she was excited so I invited her to our little Thursday night group. She not only came but brought along another tech as well. Knittykat's great mom became their teacher and they were off...by the end of the night they had cast on, changed colors and were smiling. They say they'll be back next time we meet! I thought this was just so great. My check up results were great too!
