Knitting knitting everywhere

Reading this great fantastic wonderful book at the moment

Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra

turn to page 683

there is knitting

wow

and a guy gets a recommendation from his doctor in Moscow to take it up for his stress and anxiety

"The white yarn stretches against his skin, then relaxes. The needles sound against each other. the warp and weft form, and flow. His mind, his heart fills with the radiant glow of Allah's mercy. The fabric grows, and he is at piece."

Not written by a knitter - warp and weft are weaving terms, not knitting ones. Sorry...!

I was in the local book store yesterday and came across: The Friday Night Knitting Club and thought of you. :)
