Words are powerful. They carry intent. They have energy and the ability to help, to heal and humble. Positive words impact us deeply, they motivate us and help us to live mindfully.
Words carry the power to change the world. In our previous blog, we discussed the power of inspirational words in our Mindful Collection. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the words imprinted on our needles - 3, 3.25, 3.5 and 3.75 mm knitting needles. Each word has been carefully selected for the knitter to be inspired, motivated and soothed by the unique word to each size only.
Each needle size displays a special word that encourages a mindful focus on the soothing nature of knitting. The 3 - 3.75 knitting needles work beautifully with light-weight yarns such as lace, fingering and even 4-ply. Our mindful needles are crafted from eco-friendly stainless steel that is known for the smooth knitting experience. Be it the double-pointed needles or the versatile range of circular needles in options of fixed circular knitting needles or the interchangeable needles and the range of knitting needle sets, the perfectly-tapered needle tips work with all types of yarn while encouraging the maker with positive words. Each word is laser printed on its tips. Let’s take a look at how the word inspires the knitter.
A word associated with adventure with thrill and even the daily struggle, exploration gives us a sense of thrill of happiness. For knitters, this word has special meaning and worth. Knitting is exploring new patterns, new techniques and yourself in the process of creating. Every time a knitter looks at the word and focuses on it, an inner peace develops as well as the fire of exploring ignites in the minds and hearts.
Explore is laser-printed on each of our 3mm sizes of knitting needles. Think of exploring those intricate lace patterns with our 3mm size knitting needles or you can make soft yarn socks for babies or even summer caps to cover them. It will be a beauty and definitely worth the sense of exploring.
Creativity begins when you imagine. In knitting, imagination has a major role. You need to visualize what you want to make and then work towards it. Imagination is the true power of a knitter. “Imagine” imprinted on our US 3 needle tips gives the power to design or imagine your knitting.
The focus on the word opens up many prospects. Think of all those interesting designs you can make. The US 3 knitting needles can work for baby socks, fine thread lace shawls and so much more. All you need to do is imagine!
Breathe may sound like a simple activity but it is the source of our life. For knitters, this word has significance. Sometimes while knitting they need to focus on breathing. It gets you through the most difficult situations and gives you a new purpose and perspective.
The word breathe is imprinted on our US 4 knitting needles. They often remind us to focus on our breaths. Once you control your breathing, you feel a sense of calm. This peace and serenity get us through stitches and patterns that seem like an uphill task.
In the dictionary, when you come across the word, you find ‘Create’ as verb - to cause something new to happen or exist. For a knitter, this word has the power to unlock our imagination and guide us on the path to creation. This word will keep us focused to make, use of our imaginative skills.
The power of words is undeniable. A special word, continuously repeated, can come in handy, whether you want to help focus the mind when you're meditating or just comfort yourself in a rough moment.
We’ll be back with our next mindful word in the next blog.
Until then, happy mindful knitting!
