Knitting keeps you healthy

http://www.treehugger.com/culture/dont- … althy.html

Last month I wrote an article called “Why bother knitting a scarf?” Much to my surprise, I received thousands of positive reactions from readers who share my love of homemade, local, and beautiful “slow fashion” items. Clearly, knitting is being embraced by people from all walks of life who benefit from its peaceful, relaxing repetition. It got me wondering – what’s really going on when people knit? Why is it so tremendously popular?

It turns out that knitting has incredible health benefits. It makes people feel good in just about every way. A bit of research has revealed a wide range of ways in which knitting helps humans cope, physically and mentally.

I love knitting and crocheting, it's very peaceful.

Re: Knitting keeps you healthy

You reminded me I've still got three scarves lying around somewhere that were knitted for me by ex-girlfriends. I wonder what Freud would have said about that - maybe I drove them to the point of wanting to strangle me? Two of the scarves were knitted by the same woman, so I must have really wound her up big_smile
