It is a bit like yoga…
Once you figure out what you’re doing, knitting can be very relaxing. Simple knitting projects with the same stitches over and over, use your muscle memory to get the job done. The rhythmic, repetitive motion and relaxation has the same benefits to your mind and body as a meditation session – the zen of knitting!
It is a gift to express love…
Knitting is not just a creative expression. It is a way to bring people together. Knitting moments are precious moments and a each stitch is a message of love.
It makes you pride and happy….
Not a lot of people know how to knit. Showing off something you’ve knitted to someone who has no idea how you managed it is like showing off some sort of new magic trick.
It improves concentration….
Knitting tones down hyperactivity and helps those with trouble focusing on one thing. It gives you something tangible to work on by shifting your attention to the present moment.
It reduces symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression….
Sitting still to knit reduces your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure after a few minutes. Instead of draining your energy on things you can’t control, pick up a pair of knitting needles and knit your worries away.
It builds relationships…
Knitting is a great reason to expand your social circle. Surround yourself with fellow knitters. It can be an enriching experience and mentally healthy way to build friendships.
