Knitting is therapy for me. The “clackity clack” of the needles as they rub together, the feel of the soft yarn, the joy I feel when I see the knitted piece come together…it gives me a zen-type tranquility. I like to imagine that this is how God felt as He created our world. First, there is nothing but the bare idea, then a small, thin thread appears. After a bit, the thread joins other threads to form an object. Finally, the object has a more definate shape!
Yes, I sometimes get frustrated, even bored with a particular piece of knitting, so I put it in “time out,” until I either finish it or frog it. But the whole creative process is one of joy and peace. It is my mark on the world, so to speak.
