In the car or nursing, at our lemonade stand, or sitting at the picnic table listening to the Avett Brothers station on Pandora with the garden lights on and the kids tucked in bed, I'm working on baby gifts. On the knitting needles I currently have orange legwarmers. Working the yarn relaxes the mind and I can feel any tension from the day melt away.
It's usually just a few minutes here or there, but I that's what's great about knitting. Conveniently portable. So I can weed a patch in the garden, and sit for a minute and knit two, purl two.
