Zen trances:knit yourself sane?

Knitters who have been at it a while experience a trancelike state that provides the same benefits as other forms of meditation.

Unlike, other forms of meditation though, when all is said and done, knitting produces beautiful, handcrafted, wearable works of art.

Each garment reflects its unique moment in time and is as singular in its construction as the person who knit it – an image of its creator’s spirit.
