Today it snowed! Usually by this time of year I'm tired of snow and am ready for spring, but we haven't really had snow in this part of Massachusetts since the freak ice storm in October. So, for now I'm thoroughly enjoying being able to glance out the window during class to see snowflakes drifting by.
Knitting is certainly one of the most wonderful activities to enjoy while watching the snow come down. I love knitting bulky sweaters in particular, because their warm weight on my lap is so comforting.
While I'm knitting (often after a hectic and demanding day) I often enjoy a nice, warm cup of tea. I am not a coffee person, not at all, all I need is tea. There is something about tea and knitting, they just go together so naturally for me.
I'm also a huge fan of loose leaf teas because I find the texture and color of different kinds of tea interesting.
So here is my ultimate stress busting tip: the next time you feel stressed and in need of inspiration, try a nice mug of tea (doesn't matter what kind) and pick up your latest knitting/spinning/crochet project. I'm positive that you will quickly feel more invigorated and at peace.
