If you’ve read or listened to me chat about my own story and how I to knit, you’ll also have heard me mention that I taught myself to knit as a mindful activity.
Mindfulness and mindful meditation are pretty big buzzwords right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re not important.
I have wanted to do a small class on mindfulness and knitting for awhile, but I continually put it off because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to cover as much as I wanted to, and I will probably realize as soon as this is posted that I forgot something – but that just means I’ll have to do another, better video at a later point in time.
For now, though, check out my video below. I’m discussing what meditation is and should be, what mindfulness is and how to achieve that, and I’m tying that into knitting and how you can make your knitting into more of a mindful activity than it already is. Plus, I’m sharing two of my favorite books on meditation and mindfulness – links are below.
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Mindfulness: An 8 Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Mark Williams and Danny Penman
