We all get stressed out, at some point and we all have our coping mechanisms, don’t we?. These are a couple of mine and as they vaguely resemble the shade of green, defined as seafoam this is my contribution to the One Word Photo Challenge, as organised by Jennifer: a big thanks, as usual to her.
I have dipped into this book , over the years. It is one of the many books in my possession that I absorb in an effort to calm myself down. I am somewhat highly strung, at times. Although, I am mellowing as I mature. I make myself sound like a smelly, old cheese! I’m a big fan of self-help; because, basically if you can’t help yourself, how can you expect others to help you? We’re all responsible for our own actions and lives, in my book : and actually the above book.
In my quest to become super – chilled ,I have become a big fan of loom knitting. Because:
- It is a bit like weaving, which I enjoy doing
- There are no knitting needles to stab myself with
- It’s a lot easier that knitting with needles
- It involves elements of croqueting; which I also like
- One can knit and gossip/gawp at the TV/ talk on the phone, quite easily
I personally find it very relaxing and creative. As for the wool… the amazing colours and types can keep me captive in a wool shop for hours on end… so much choice.
So, to sit and knit is a vital part of my wellbeing.
