Lessons from the Knit Wit

I’ve enjoyed some quiet time knitting over the past couple of much-enjoyed holiday days and I’ve learned two things.
1.  Don’t leave your knitting out where the dogs (or more specifically, Maya) can get at it.
2.  The practice of knitting, whether it is the rhythm of the process or just sitting quietly and relaxing, invites ideas for writing to come into one’s mind.
I was up at 5:30 today and have spent much of the morning at the computer.  I’m deep into the second draft of my memoir today and it’s flowing! Oh, what a feeling!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Yea! I knew you'd love it, once you got the hang of it. I agree, it's much like walking or long-distance driving for me, in that it helps me to slip into right-brain mode more easily, and get those creative juices flowing!

  2. I need to pick my knitting back up. I'm running low on dish rags.

    It is very relaxing. Patty

  3. It IS such a great feeling!

    Silly Maya.

  4. YOu go,girl.
