The Return of the Knitting Natalie!

Someone once said (I think that I remember who and I think it was on twitter but I am not sure);

'Knitting is very zen.'

Indeed, it is.

Tonight I picked up my 4 mm needles (dug out of storage) and the one small 50g ball of cream/off-white/natural coloured Evergreen Aran (70% cotton, 15% polyester &15% nylon) 'wool'/yarn that I had left and started to knit, casting on 30 stitches. By the time we had watched Hellboy (a re-rerun on TV) and eaten desert (I heated the custard in the microwave), I had knitted 9 inches (yeah, I know, I am mixing my metaphors and measurements) of a self designed (on the fly) design. I also discovered that I can still, years after I last knitted, knit without looking at my hands/needles except occasionally to count rows!

The return of knitting!
"I have not knitted for years. I used to get too dizzy. What with the relatively recent 'curing' of the dizziness with a new medication, I had been thinking about knitting again and, tonight, I did!

I designed this on the fly with the only ball of yarn that I had. I am impressed with how like riding a bike knitting is - you never forget how and I can already knit without looking at my hands/needles again!"


ETA: I could not remember *how* to knit to start with and found this website very useful!
