Mindfulness in motion

July was a fallow month on the knitting front and I had lots of niggles running through my head. Putting the two together I believe if I had been doing more knitting I may have had less niggles???

I have made a concerted effort this month to do some knitting.

I am making a jumper. I have made this before (see my first post “a fresh start“) but it is quite a straight forward pattern, nothing too complicated πŸ˜‰ And at the end I will have a jumper for work in the winter πŸ˜„

Focusing on the rhythm of knit a row purl a row and then the routines of the cables is very soothing and I am noticing the difference at night, I am not going over those niggly little problems when I should be sleeping 😰

However on the down side it is so damn hot at the moment! I am keeping above knitting wrapped up in an old towel (one from the rag bag, destined to be cut up for dusters) and I have to keep wiping the sweat off my hands on it. Knitting really isn’t a summer occupation!

I have also spent time sat by my leggy lavender whose scent is very soothing. I always associated lavender with old ladies. I have this rather neglected plant in the garden to attract bees but I am really appreciating it this year – will treat to some tlc at the end of the season πŸ€”

Anyway back to knit a row, wipe sweat off hands, purl a row…

Woolly wishes,

  1. That’s why my summer knitting is small, cotton or linen, or done on cooler days! Even that last pair of socks I had to put aside on the really humid days, when my hands got too sticky – and socks are the (my) definition of small.

  2. What’s the pattern for the sweater? It looks interesting.

    I am crocheting a cardigan but thankfully have managed to work on it without getting too hot.
