  • A calming project 25 June 2016 | View comments

  • With the momentous and very frightening changes that the UK is embarking on, I have been in a complete state of shock this last couple of days.

    I had a strong need to stop what I was working on, and knit a blanket.  At the time I didn't think too deeply about it, but on reflection, I think this was subconsciously my comforting 'security blanket'.  I have had to sit and knit it at every possible opportunity over the last couple of days. I needed a long comforting project that would take quite a few days to complete.  A project that once designed and on my needles, would need some concentration, but the repetition would require no further decision-making.  I find this type of project clears my mind and puts me into a calm almost medative state.

    Being creative has pulled me through some very sad and difficult times over the years.  I really do recommend it. If life just seems too much to cope with, pick up a pencil, a paintbrush, some knitting needles, and create something....it is very calming.

    Here is my security blanket which is growing by the minute!

    I hope to launch this knitting pattern in the next couple of weeks, once my blanket is finished.

    Take care
