Actually, for me, it should be, "KNITTING!" Two sticks and a string. The amazing loops and knots that make a pattern...
I am rarely without a something. I normally knit socks. I am, right now, knitting squares to make a 100 square afghan. I have knit hats. Scarves. A shawl or two. Baby blankets. LOTS of baby blankets... A dust mitt. A Queen Elizabeth doll. A knitting cat.
I have found that knitting is calming for me. I knit, I can concentrate. When I was in school, and before I learned to knit, I doodled constantly. I think this is probably the same idea, but it's nice to have something I can use when I am finished, where the doodle, most of the time, was just doodling... I did give a few of my pictures out, but rarely. On the other hand, people really seem to want my knitting.
And I am glad, in this recitation of blessings, the blessing that can keep me from fidgeting and being grumpy, can give others a blessing, too!
(And I am up to square 43 on my afghan, if anyone is interested...)
