Knitting sighting - magazine article

The article is on "the slow movement," slowing down our fast-paced lives. There was a little blurb about knitting:

Slow hobbies have never been hotter. The number of knitters under the age of 35 is up 50 percent since 1998, and two-thirds knit to reduce stress. "Studies show that the rhythmic, repetitive dance of the needles can lower heart rate and blood pressure, lulling the knitter into a peaceful state, according to In Praise of Slowness. Among the knitterati: Uma Thurman, Courteney Cox Arquette, Julia Roberts, and Debra Messing.

I thought that was pretty fun. And even more fun- being called the knitterati!
