daily dose of fiber

Why is it when the season changes and we head toward winter, we want to bring out the yarn and make something? Is it the pending gift-giving season that prompts this, or the deep down internal instinct to feather the nest for cold weather?

Whatever the reason, it is comforting to feel the fiber, to make something soft, creation is good for the soul. Of course the local yarn shop is loving this seasonal change also!

Fringe benefits - keeping my hands busy keeps me from eating junk while watching TV. Now if I could just exercise too... I know I am not coordinated enough to walk and knit at the same time, but what about sitting on a stationary bike?

And, no I can't say what it is I am making, it might be a gift for you!
