Hello and happy Sunday!
Today I find myself craving bit of quiet and squishy yarn for company. I've talked about it before, but silent time is a sort of fuel for me. Do you ever feel that the world get's too loud?

I would love to hear what you do in order to quiet the noisy world around you. For me, soft music playing the background, a cup of chamomile and my knitting serve up the most beneficial regrouping medicine. Sometimes I will mix it up and read a bit and when I do read and knit for me it is almost always...Harry Potter.
For many our lives consist of getting things done right away, multitasking and not taking a moment to really breath until the job is done. We are focused so much on getting from point A to Z in the quickest way possible. All this caused noise in my mind as well as a baby head on my right shoulder ( baby head is what I call the knot that happens on my right shoulder). While I am sure a massage could rub out that stress but for me it is a temporary solution. Listening to my breathing and concentrating on the flow of the beautiful yarn between my fingers, proves to be a cheaper and reminds me to think about my breathing.
On Sundays I take the focus away from "deadline" knitting projects and dedicate my day to an easy knit that allows me to not think. During cooler months it was my scrappy blanket and now while the heat it on it is all about the Fade. :)
Do you use your knitting to help you to "just be"? If so, I would love to hear what works for you. Is it about setting a stage (like total silence and some tea) or do you take your knitting with you on a walk, or something else?
