If it weren't for knitting, I'm sure I'd go insane! Last night as I was sitting through yet another interminable meeting, happily knitting away on the easy part of the Lavold sweater, I wondered how all the other attendees could tolerate it when all they could do was just sit there.

But the major contribution knitting makes to my sanity is in getting through the winter. It is cold here in northern Michigan and, usually, completely cloudy. Today is an exception -- the sun is at least shining, even though the temp is still in single digits Fahrenheit. Brrrr. So I just hunker down with my knitting and try to feel grateful that I live in a place that enables me to make good use of the warmest woolies.
