Frustrations in Knitting
Knitting is relaxing. Knitting is relaxing. Knitting is relaxing. Wait. Did I just knit two together or did I skip that? ARRGGH. Okay, I admit that I do not practice much and unlike Cerise, I mostly knit on Tuesdays at the wine bar. So the last few nights I have sat myself down and knitted a few rows each evening. No music, no wine, no chit chat, just me and the yarn. Going slow, no distractions, one, two three, [I outta call my mom tomorrow] five, wait. ARRRGH.
Really, knitting is much better zen practice than sitting on a cushion. If you can clear your mind of all thought and just get into the rhythm, it's easy, right? Just like sitting on a cushion, it's all practice and patience.
