The Healing Power of Knitting

I'm back after five days of having a broken keyboard. One of my darling children spilled something on it, and I was unable to space, use parentheses or the letter "p". Needless to say, my emails during that five days read like haikus since I had to put a period between each word because I couldn't space. Strange days indeed.

I ran across this video by American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox. I have always been a fan of hers, and now that I saw her video for "Farmer's Daughter", well, she is a woman after my own heart. I had no idea she was a knitter.

The video is very emotional. It is heartbreaking how she "unravels" herself from her mother throughout the song. But the ending is beautiful. She has knit together her own life as a very caring mother.

Knitting definitely is a form of meditation for me. If you've never tried it, you should.

Enjoy the video.

This is the funniest thing I've read in a long time.

And this must've been written about me.

Keep warm wherever you are!
