Mel> Thanks for sharing. Yes it is important to spot the degree to which our aversion plays a role in impatience and the point at which it becomes intolerance. And knitting. great idea. I remember my grandmother used to knit one jumper for me and one for my brother each year. It took her six months to finish one. It is all to easy I think to decide that that sounds like far too much hard work for the reward. But its the being there doing it and finding a moment of calm inner quiet that is as much the reward as the finished item.
