Knitting, it's good for what ails you

As a long time knitter, it was lovely to see that Yahoo's most-emailed article Saturday morning was about the fact that Guys Join the Knitting Craze. Even after knitting for decades, I still find miraculous the process of taking two sticks and some string, and ending up with a flexible, strong, often very beautiful fabric. It's a peaceful, productive activity, and can be very social, because you can talk as you knit -- unlike all those dreadful hand-held computer games, each of which isolates a child in his own, violent little universe.
