Why Knit Anyhow?

In knitting on July 10, 2013 at 6:00 pm

I need a creative outlet.
I knit for comfort.
To feel good.
For relief of anxiety and stress.
I knit for meditation.
I knit for expression,
Of thought and feelings.
To free my mind of worry.
I need a place to hide my fears,
Tangle them all in the stitches.
I need a place to put my tears,
My hurt and my anger too.
Knit them out of me, one by one.
The result? A beautiful fabric.
To make a place to put my love and care into.
So, why I knit?
I knit because I have to.
