Knit your way to Wellness
Okay, before we start our OCTOBER "Why shop GLOBAL when you can shop LOCAL"...........
Have you ever heard of meditative knitting?
I hadn't either, before today!
It's something about the rhythmic movement back and forth, the focus and precision it takes to move your hands in such a way, that many actually use it as a medium for meditating.
People who spin their own yarn also reap the benefits of the calming, relaxing effect of meditation.
So, if you're looking for a new hobby that also has health benefits, take up a spinning class (NO not the kind at the gym) the kind with a spindle or wooden wheel, people!
While you're at it, check out the beautiful hand spun art yarn at Weird and Twisted on Etsy.
I have never seen such amazing and unique yarn for your projects, I love the Pumpkin Art Yarn with ribbons, pumpkin charms and beads. Gorgeous! Perfect timing for fall weaving!
Weird and Twisted, is a small business from GERMANY! Specializing in fancy schmancy Art Yarn...........like THIS:
Their creations are born out of soft wool, silk and alpaca fibers with beautiful glass pearls, shiny cut glass crystals, semi precious stones and other quality supplies.
