Oh wow, more yogi knitters!

Aha, turns out I have loads of great company on the knitting front - many of you will have seen this article from the September Yoga Journal. I didn't because:
  1. I was traveling
  2. I have been a little off YJ of late - too many unfeasibly beautiful people, not enough substance. It's back in favour right this second, though.
If you want more mindful knit-spiration, check out Tara Jon Manning's blog, Earth-Sky-Knitter. Lovely!

And, just so you know, knitting really is therapeutic. Except when you mess up in a lace pattern and can't figure out where things went wrong, so you are forced to live with the glitch. Grrr. Well, it makes the items handmade I guess.

Lastly, I simply MUST have this book:

Greetings from Knit Cafe. I think I might want to knit everything in it. Now. Right after I finish this slightly dodgy, very simple-lace scarf (yes, scarf! Leopards can change their spots, it seems.)

I don't plan to renew my YJ subscription. It was a tough decision for me but I'm sticking to it. I'm just not happy with it. Anyway, I always wanted to learn how to knit but I know me, I'll get into it for a couple of weeks and end up with a bunch of unfinished scarves. You know Cyndi Lee is a big time knitter? :)

What? You mean all yogis don't knit?

How is this possible.
