    I read to unwind. I have tried to teach myself knitting…and I can get the basic stitches (in my left-handed fashion) but it irks me when the scarf curls up…so I take things apart and go back to crocheting where at least I can kind of finish a project, lol. Sorry that you had such a rough year 2000 but glad that you found something to help you relax (as long as you don’t stab anyone with the needles…)

      Hi, ELF! Glad you’re here. Thanks for taking the time to comment; I sure appreciate it!

      The scarf curls because you’re using “stockinette” stitch; if you try garter stitch, which is knitting every row (in other words, don’t purl back, knit back), that should take care of that. But if you enjoy crochet, then keep doing that. Rachel crochets; I knit.

      Hmm. Stabbing someone with the needles. There’s an idea. ~grin~

    I love to meditate, but with having a family, it’s kind of hard to get the quiet time.
    I do martial arts to help with the stress, but I also love to read. Reading is my top stress reliever. It can pull me in and make me forget my worries for a brief time.
    I could never get knitting. My grandmother used to do it, but it looked so hard. Maybe I could try now. 🙂
