Men with Needles

My thanks to whomever began this - I'm new to SF and have been looking for just such a group. If anyone is interested in starting regular get-togethers, let me know. I'm near Upper Market/Castro.

Knitting--My New Yoga

Ever since I began knitting a few weeks ago, the most rewarding aspect that I have experienced has been the meditative state that I enter once knitting. I have found that I knit at a faster pace when I have something on my mind and end up knitting for a longer period of time as well. After a while, (and many, many rows) I can look at my work and feel that I have worked through something mentally and I actually have a physical representation of it! I find it very rewarding and extremely calming. I find myself not caring what it is that I'm making, but just that I am going through the process. Does anyone else have a similar experience?
