Thanks, David! I have been meaning to incorporate yoga everyday (not just Thursday mornings in class), but I really don't like the tapes. Your suggestion is great. I do have my favorite poses, some relaxing, some energizing. A combination of the two would be a lovely way to start my day. I hadn't thought of knitting as an extension of yoga, but both seem to help focus "monkey-mind". I appreciate the encouragement!

What a timely topic! I just got back from 5 days of Annual Training at Camp Atterbury. I took a small knitting project but didn't even have enough time to finish my gauge swatch. I bet if I had I would have felt more at ease living with relative strangers. Of course, it would have helped if I had grabbed my small Bible instead of my prayer journal, as well. I didn't have either my mental health or my spiritual support.

PattiG, your remarks are right on the money! Also, I love it when dh watches football or plays his video games. I can tune them out but can't do that with regular TV. I just look up from time to time when he mentions something and say, "Wow!" or "Cool" or something.

I have pretty much given up playing video games in exchange for knitting. I've been playing video games since Pong but they just don't make me feel as good as my knitting does!

[quote/]Knitting helps me feel like I'm getting something done and the finished object just makes me burst with warm fuzzy good one me feelings.

Of course this also makes me easier to live with.

Anything that makes us easier to live with is a good thing, I think!

I find it so interesting that all knitters, old and new ones, have the same feeling about it. I love it!! I wonder if it was intended to be that way - if God said, " Life will throw them curves - so - I'll give them knitting. They will be at peace when they knit." That works for me.
