“I knit obsessively. My former managing partner taught me to knit. Aside from all of the legal knowledge that she taught me, knitting was an amazing skill set that she handed down to me. I find that knitting relaxes me and helps me focus. Even my daughter has commented that I am less high-strung since I started knitting every day.
“Every morning, I catch my commuter train and sit and knit. It is my morning meditation. When I am stuck on a matter, I will take a mental break and knit a few rows to allow myself to regroup my thoughts, then return to my work.
“I also challenged myself to knit all of my family members Fair Isle Star Wars wear for Christmas. My family loved their gifts!”
