      Yes — especially in these days of vitriolic hatred spewing from so many sources.

    Wonderful metaphor. I used to knit a lot and just delight in the colors and textures of yarn but lately this old body, repetitive motion stuff, limits me.

      Ah, I do understand. And I’m what is called a “throw over” knitter….meaning I juse my right hand/arm to lift the yarn up and over for each knit stitch. Some have the yarn wound around a finger and it appears easier on the wear and tear of ligaments and muscles — but I’ve never accomplished that type of knitting skill. So every once in a while, I have to pop an Advil as my right shoulder will begin to ache. Glad you enjoyed! So, do you still have a “stash” of yarn? 🙂

        Oh yes. And I still go to it sporadically. But I used to like to knit prayer shawls and am dying to do another for a raffle…but I can’t take advil. I wind the yarn around my finger and have to keep my needle stabilized under my right arm. Weird, huh?
