Learning to knit may not be at the top of your to-do list, but it should. There are many benefits beyond creating your own comfortable and warm clothes.
Whether with needle or crochet, you have many reasons to start knitting right away!
Here are the benefits of knitting:
Creates a sense of pride
Not many people know how to knit. When you show something you’ve knitted to someone who has no clue, it will seem like a kind of magic to them. You will get tons of compliments and make people jealous with your talent. Of course, there will be those who make some demands, but this is a natural return of productivity.
Has similar benefits to meditation
Once you’ve mastered what you’re doing, knitting can be extremely relaxing. In simple knitting patterns, the same loops are often thrown over and over, so you can use your muscle memory and distract your thoughts. These rhythmic, repetitive and relaxing movements have the same effects on your mind and body as meditation.
