  Monday Morning Mirth  

I recently received my new phone book – and imagine my surprise to find out that indeed

Knitting is NOT the New Yoga…

    Knitting to some of us is the new yoga!
    Reminds me that last year I attempted to start a knitting group at the Medical Center where I work as a nurse. All I wanted was to use an empty classroom once a week and vowed I’d clean up after. I was told that, “The hospital was in the business of promoting health and in their opinion knitting didn’t qualify.” I was shocked! I guess some people just don’t see it our way. To me knitting is my sanity, my meditation and yoga all rolled up in one.

    Thank you for a much-needed giggle. At least there is a benefit to be had from knowing this (sad, sad) fact: more yarn for the rest of us! Happy knitting.

    Knitting sure ain’t yoga. I never sweat that much after knitting. ;)

    I think I’ll stick with the yarn, if it’s all the same. I think I’m less likely to hurt myself with knitting.

    I don’t know after some of my knitting marathons I started to feel like some sort of stretching and deep breathing exercise was needed beforehand. Sounds like yoga to me.

    I have recently returned to pilates after four years away and I must say that I truly knot my body up while knitting…. my pilates instructor marvels at how off center my head is and I think it must be from hours of indian-style on the sofa while knitting… I am half tempted to try sitting on a yoga map while knitting, but I don’t know about that….

  8. Ohhhh, we don’t even have a YARN category in our yellow pages. You – are – like – so – lucky!

    Cracking up over here. I’ve noticed that inequity in phone books before, too.

    Okay, everybody! Stand UP and Reach for the SKY!

    That’s better…

    I am a lucky girl to have so many yarn shops – many are not near my house, though. Chicago is a METROPOLIS – it reaches far and wide, from the boders of Indiana to the territory of Wisconsin.

    All those people are of the Tribe Chicago…

    Hahaha – that’s awesome. Apparently now spinning is the new yoga too. We’ll see about that!
