Stress and Knitting

Lately, I’m so drowned in news and crises, that I find myself sitting and seeking stress relief.

Here it is. This is my go-to evening wind down. It’s better than drinking, which I can’t do. Knitting and drinking don’t mix- in case you’ve ever wondered.

This is actually loom knitting, and afghan knitting in particular. I can knit with needles. But this loom thing is my new hobby and has become addictive. I’m learning to mix colors. Changing stitches is still very new, and I’ve got a ways to go.

What’s your stress hobby? What takes you away and helps you cope? How do you get through the day you just finished and fall asleep with a clear head? Share in the comments if you’d like.
