… soothing rhythm of the clicking needles into the quiet recesses of her mind…

Comment 1 Standard

Rhythm is paramount in producing the psychic serenity that usually accompanies knitting, Just as a shaman will ride a drumbeat out of his body and into the spirit world, a knitter will trail the soothing rhythm of the clicking needles into the quiet recesses of her mind.  Susan Gordon Lydon

I’m finding it very healing to knit.  Calms the mind.

Knitting grounds me in the realness of the physical world. The feel of the yarn in my fingers, the steady growth of the fabric, the soothing click of the needles, the attention required to stay on course all help to hold me close to terra firms. Though mind and spirit travel in the cosmos, beyond the moon and stars, my body stays rooted in comfortable solidity. I’ve come to appreciate solidity in these last few years, to value strength, an unshakeable core.
