The Tao of Purl

Scarf by SusanNeedleHands
Sometimes I stumble upon articles that I just have to share. This is one of those times.

Caitlin Spaulding has brought to our attention the growing trend of both meditation and knitting, and how the two have so much in common. She writes:
The formation of a stitch, the repetition of a pattern, the recitation of a mantra, the deliberation of a walking meditation, the creation of a mandala: all of these are examples of the inherent and beneficial repetitive aspects of knitting and Buddhism.
So check out her full article on her blog: Out of the Rocking Chair
