Zen knitting

by Shannon on June 27, 2002

I started to learn how to knit in fall 2000, when I was trapped in a Hartford hotel room for three weeks doing stockbroker boot camp. After calling the helpful staff at the Wool Connection, who picked out & shipped some yarn and needles to me, I muddled through beginning stitches with a 1960s learn-to-knit brochure from my aunt. I couldn’t even finish a scarf, I was so busy being a Type A perfectionist. When I moved to Boston in late winter 2002, I started taking lessons at Mind’s Eye Yarns, and really got into the process instead of the product. Zen knitting.

My goal is to learn to knit well enough to make creative / beautiful wearable objects, and to pick up associated skills along the way. (Spinning? weaving? dyeing? I’ll cross those bridges as they come…) I used to do a lot of embroidery, but you can only have so many pillows! Sweaters are more my speed…

Currently on my Amazon wishlist (comes out August 2002): new vogue knitting book!
I use Crystal Palace bamboo needles (mostly circular, some straight). They make a lovely quiet clicking noise as you knit. My knitting equipment wishlist includes an umbrella swift and a ball winder, because I have a tendency to turn lovely new skeins into tight little balls. Oh, grow up! You know what I mean.

Ok, admittedly, that was funny.
