I was listening to Your Health on NPR and they had a segment on meditation and how it lowers your blood pressure. Meditation produces a relaxation response. Knitting does that for me! My blood pressure has gone down since I started knitting...... especially sock knitting. The socks that are lowering my blood pressure now are the Karner Blues.
I bought the cable needle necklace that is featured on Darcy's blog. Darcy has great instructional videos on how to use the cable needle necklace. I'm using it to knit the 2x2 and 3x3 cables in the Naive sock pattern. I've trying to knit the 1x1 cables without the cable needle. I'm able to do so except for the one at the beginning of the round. Those stitches are too tight to use the cableneedleless cable technique. Go checkout Darcy's blog and leave a comment.
