simple tube cowl tutorial

Tube cowls seem to be everywhere these days—the kind of tube cowl for which you cast on provisionally just enough stitches to fit comfortably around a 16" circular needle and then knit circularly for 30" or more before grafting the two open ends of the long tube together. The resulting shape usually resembles something akin to the inner tube of a bicycle tire. I like tube cowls for a number of reasons. For one thing, air gets trapped inside the tube, providing extra “cushiness” and warmth, especially when I wrap the cowl around my neck two or three times. I also like that I don’t have to worry about the wrong side of the work showing because it’s permanently hidden inside the tube. Finally, tube cowls let me avoid edges that…

medknitation: a calmer way of life

Meditation is part of every major religion and spiritual path. The practice is thousands of years old, but it addresses many of our modern problems by helping us improve focus, reduce stress (which boosts better health and healing), and be more resilient in a super-fast-paced, always-changing world. Meditation is about training your focus on one thing so that your thoughts gradually recede into the background, the way they do when you’re really into intarsia knitting and you no longer notice anything around you.

HOW TO MEDKNITATE Here’s how to get in a daily dose of relaxing, wellness-promoting medknitation: 1 Dial down distractions. Turn off…
