Now that the new year is almost upon us it is time to start thinking about making resolutions to eat right, exercise and get into shape. So, let me help you out with your healthy endeavors by providing the Knitter’s Food Pyramid as a guide. By following this simple guide, you are sure to lose weight and get into shape.
Level 1: A high fiber diet is the foundation of any healthy diet, so be sure to get multiple servings of fiber a day. For added benefit, be sure to consume a variety of fibers like wool, cotton, alpaca and silk. Don’t be afraid to occasionally add something more exotic to your diet, like a dash of qiviut from time to time.
Level 2: Every body needs a strong frame to support it, so support your frame with daily servings of needles. To get the proper building blocks be sure to partake of a range, from straights to double points to circulars, and of various materials like bamboo and steel to ensure that you get all of the essential minerals in your diet.
Level 3: In order for your body to be able to properly utilize the nutrients from the first two levels you must consume proper guidance in the form of instructions, patterns and charts. As we get older some people think they need less of this food group, but to ensure continued growth and vitality be sure to consume servings from this group on a regular basis.
Level 4: Add accessories to your diet as needed to maintain proper function. Be sure to include a variety of colors, styles and materials to guarantee that your diet includes all required vitamins. No diet is complete without a little spice so be sure to add some exotic beaded stitch markers and colorful cable needles.
Level 5: Top off your healthy diet with a good beverage. Tea is always a good choice, but might I recommend a pint of hard cider? Just be sure to consume alcohol in moderation, especially when working with complex lace patterns.
To help remind you of these dietary essentials, the Knitter’s Food Pyramid is available in prints to hang on your kitchen wall, stickers to place on your computer and tote bags to carry to your local yarn shop. In fact, you should get a few bags so you can carry home all of your goodies as you stock up for the year ahead.

Happy New Year!
