Why Everyone Should Learn to Knit or Crochet
Tossing aside all the laundry, dishes, paper work, and homework in order to sit and knit or crochet is something that everyone must try!!! Ignoring the squalor can be hard—I tend to feel guilty when I push aside all my writing work and housework so that I can work on my latest yarn creation, but then I quickly get lost in the clicking of needles, the texture of fibers running through my fingers— I transcend to a calm state of mind that is like no other. I forget about all my other worries and cares.
This is why we ALL need to learn to knit or learn to crochet! The power this craft has to transform you from a tight, stressed ball of energy to a calm, meditative mind is amazing! In fact, there have been studies on this craft’s meditative power that prove knitting and crocheting have the ability to calm the mind.
