Throughout this year, I have been busy knitting what I call “therapeutic dishcloths.” I have found simple knitting and embroidery projects to be a very good way to de-stress. It seems as though if I keep my hands busy, my mind can’t wander down the dangerous alleys of “what if…” that make my heart start to race, my lungs start to hyperventilate, and my levels of adrenaline and cortisol to surge.
Here are some of the results of my labor. Besides being useful, they are quite pretty, I think! Ah, I feel more relaxed already.
