Posted by Kate | Posted in Podcasts | Posted on 23-03-2009

In the second segment we talked about when to stop knitting . . . WHY YOU SHOULD NOT KNIT (OR STOP KNITTING)

* You don’t love it
* You’re not willing to make an investment
* You can’t knit, physically
* You can’t knit, for other reasons

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE A BREAK FROM KNITTING There may be times in your life where you don’t feel the urge to knit, and that’s okay. Take a break, step back and regroup. We find this happens in these types of situations.

* You’ve just finished knitting a big project, and you’re mentally and physically drained
* You’ve got a crisis in your life
* You’ve had a forced exile from knitting
* You’ve got something wonderful going on in your life that you need to focus on

We closed the podcast by . . .

* Sharing Knitting and the Word from Psalm 46: Be still and know that He is God
* A prayer for the many health-related concerns of our listeners and friends; travel mercies for the Ridgecrest group to Italy; protection for Knit Together
