Karuna Knits

Well, if the name isn’t taken. My idea is to do Karuna meditation with each piece to infuse it with compassion, healing or whatever else I can think of. I can do different meditations by request. I think this is an original idea (PLEASE DON’T STEAL IT), so it will increase the value of my work and maybe make the world a little better place. Of course, I can’t make any guarantees about the quality of my karuna…but I’m sure it will become more powerful as time goes on. I’m toying with the idea of doing it AS I’m knitting, as opposed to spending an hour with each piece afterward. Or maybe doing them in piles. I don’t know.

To make it official, I want to register the business, start book-keeping etc. I plan on selling at craft shows and markets, as well as on a website and e-bay. But one thing at a time. I have a number of pieces to finish up and some things I want to make for myself before I start really cranking it out. I would love to have a good size inventory by the end of the year, but that’s asking a lot. It will depend on how much the knitting machine can help me go quicker, how much time I spend on embellishing, and how much time I can spend working each day. Some of my other goals my help with time, some may interfere, so my 40 odd things is always a work in progress.


I sometimes write things that I don't really mean or believe. These are not to be taken literally, nor as definitive statements about me or my beliefs. Thoughts and emotions are transient, and I reserve the right to change my mind, generalize, exaggerate, give strong opinions, or write other possibly offensive statements. I don't lie, but I may say something that's not true to check whether I believe it or not, or to make a point. Call it creative license. This is my blog, and do have the right to say what I want. I'm using it in creatively therapeutic ways. Whatever the reader may think of me and my words, please believe that my core intentions are always good and I never willingly hurt anyone.
