They say knitting is soothing. I think that's true, but I also find that for me, it doesn't work when I'm really stressed out. And that's why I stopped knitting that cowl that I was working on in September. I was stressed out, sick and tired. But let's not go into that. I just wasn't able to relax and knit. I am better now. So much better that I picked up my knitting this week and finished that cowl. I started on a matching hat (of course!) and finished that too. I'm ready for winter now! From the leftover yarn I made a square for Knit-a-Square and then I started a new project, my mind buzzing with more ideas. I love that.
