If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Let's Talk About Knitting

...since I don't tend to do that a lot on my knitting blog.

What do you get out of knitting? Stress relief? (There is not enough yarn in the world for me.) A sense of accomplishment? (I would think I'd have to finish something for that.)

Is it the tactile sensation? I love the feel of the yarn and the needles in my hand. The creative outlet? The purposeful focus? The unfocused busywork?

Is it the idea that you are continuing tradition or preserving skills? Is it the practicality of actually making something useful?

Or is it establishing your value of being able to make clothing in a post-apocalyptic world?
