I have been crocheting all of my Xmas presents this year -- my
time crocheting and it has greatly improved my mental health. I
have gotten more audio books read, more net flicks series
and more evidence of the process than ever before. I love the
yogic routine the
your fingers go through with each stitch. And I
love the evidence -- the goods I get to give away and have people
think that I was doing a lot of work for them. But I am also loving
my Michael Jackson Pandora station workouts, and I couldn't do
without the other. I couldn't sit still for long enough to produce a
crocheted product if I didn't work out every day. And when I am
doing the crocheting, the only thing that goes wrong is that every
hour or so I have to stand up and walk around and sometimes I
to do this and I end up after 3 hours feeling like my body has
into the couch. This can't be good for my bottom half. My fingers
and mind are getting an excellent meditative workout, but my
and legs are not moving at all and get sore.

it a try and get back to you, after I untangle myself.
