Knitting is good for you....

Not that I needed confirmation from any sort of medical expert but there was a feature on CBS's The Early Show earlier this month that ties improved health with knitting and quilting. Here' s the link to that story: 'Knitting for Your Health'. I know I feel better when I'm knitting, quilting, rug hooking, felting, etc. There's always a heightened sense of joy when I'm crafting.

With few complications (why do I have 5 leftover dowels??) and about 15 minutes I put my new winding station together tonight. Doesn't every knitter need a winding station?!

I L-U-V, love it! I chose it for the thickness of the top shelf. Most every gadget can be clamped to it, including my wooden swift, Royal winder, and Strauch jumbo winder (on the bottom shelf). Oh the happiness that exudes from such a perfect find! Being white, it fits in perfectly with my Expedit shelving units. Matchy-matchy can be a good thing. Don't you just love it??

Close ups of the clamping situations:

This is soooooo much better than using my secretary in my living room. The swift left marks on the drop shelf -- arrrgghh.

And look, I managed to fill up the shelves while you weren't looking:

Somehow it doesn't suprise me that you managed to fill an empty spot with stuff!
