Knitting for Relaxation

This is the "Slinky Ribs" sweater from Wendy Bernard's book, "Custom Knits."  The long-sleeved version is pictured on page 81.  I knitted this sweater from Wool Ease yarn by Lion Brand Yarns.
When times are difficult, there is more reason to knit than ever.  Whether in the waiting room at the hospital or at home after a hard day at work, the person who knits has something relaxing on which to focus, even if only for a few minutes.
