T KNITTING Young people find comfort in yarn By MIRANDA LEITSINGER The Associated Press NEW YORK — Forget scented candles, feng shui and yoga. Young people in the know say the latest therapy to stomp out city blues and stave off the pressures of a dot-com world is none other than an incredibly low-tech activity: knitting. "I work in the computer industry where you create virtually This is something that I can create with my hands," said Rebecca Hartranft, 29, a former marketing manager for an Internet services company, as she wove dark gray thread at a Manhattan knitting class. "You're going from a string and two sticks to a beautiful piece of art." The number of knitters and crocheters under age 35 has soared from 3 percent nationwide in 1998 to 15 percent in 2000, a 400 percent increase, according to the Craft Yarn Council of America. Knitting began its most recent comeback with star power in the late 1990s, when Julia Roberts and Daryl Hannah picked up their needles and "You're going from a string and two sticks to a beautiful piece ofart" Rebecca Hartranft member of Manhattan knitting class sparked a resurgence of interest in the craft. Celebrity appeal aside, new knitters described it as rhythmic, comforting and sensual, with Zenlike qualities that drew them to it — some admit obsessively "Just knitting, 1 can go into another zone, calm myself down and then approach another task," said Ann Chung, 27, a project director at the Center for AIDS Research. Some knitters approach the age-old craft with a distinctly modern flair. "I can multitask while knitting," said speech therapist Lauren Meiner, 28, admitting that she uses a headset for her phone so she can knit and talk simultaneously. Knitters said that although they enjoy its solitary aspects, socialization also is an important factor "It gives us an excuse to get together," Chung said about a group of knitting friends who meet about once a month. "It's more fun than doing yoga together," agreed Dolin O'Shea, 27, laughing.

" 'Blvd. SAVE THAT TOOTH .The name of the game is to try to save as many of your teeth as possible. Even a badly decayed or abscessed tooth does not necessarily lead to an extraction. In the great majority of cases, root canal therapy can be used to relieve the problem and save the tooth. A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment is referred to as non vital, because the inside nourishment of the tooth will be gone, but it still has »• source of blood and nerve supply from the tissues that attach it to the socket, and that is very much alive. It can survive in this condition for many years and will remain in place as long as there is bone to hold it. In the back of the mouth, it can serve a critical function as a rear anchor for fixed bridge or a posterior support for a removable bridge. It can be the decisive factor in being able to eat almost anything comfortably or the constant agony of having to pick and choose. Those are important enough functions to be worth saving a tooth that is in trouble. New Patients Welcome
