Re-Knitting - The New Yoga
Author: Rebecca Gilling
Once the preserve of grannies, knitting has become hip. In fact it is now being seen as the new yoga. Whether on a cold winter evening or during your daily commute, it’s both relaxing and so satisfying to clink those needles and produce something beautiful and useful.
Knitting helps focus the mind and it requires a bit of practice and skill but what it doesn’t require is new wool.
New wool is expensive and hard to come by. Old jumpers and other knits can be unravelled and the yarn reused – or re-knitted. It's a thrill and a skill trawling through the racks of knitwear at op-shops and garage sales to find quality yarns in great colours.
You may even be inspired to become a Yarn Bomber like Queen Babs who is bombing Sydney one pole at a time (and who provided the beautiful photo from JAM-Project).
