MINDFUL MAKING #41 Woolly holiday plans

Welcome or welcome back to the mindfulmaking YouTube channel. Thank you so much for the positive comments to the Breezy Summer Tee, the latest published mindfulmaking design. Testing of the next design the Gum Nut Tee is underway in preparation for the expected pattern release late July. Please be invited to episode number 41 where we will chat about a new future mindfulmaking design, the second life of a sweater for my husband and the considerate plans for which project to bring for an upcoming holiday.

Grab you project, a cuppa, and settle in. Enjoy.

Knitting is my mindfulness practice. That is where I set down to breathe to relax and to focus. Knitting nourishes our built-in desire to create and beyond all the mental and health benefits of knitting we even get beautiful wearable garments.
