Learn to Knit

COMPLETED BY 108

LISTED 152

Knitting is the new yoga! In this overwhelming and frenetic 3world everything is wanted now, now, now… But when we pick up our needles and resume our projects, it’s as if time stops and our daily 3stress levels are reduced. It’s like a relaxing therapy.

Knitting stimulates the logical part of our brains and maintains us young and active. Whilst we are knitting we are giving ourselves a mental workout, calculating how much yarn we need, the number of stitches and rows we need… Total concentration!

As happens when we partake in other manual activities, knitting encourages our creativity. It develops our artistic side and allows us to unleash our imaginations.

Without realising it, we increase our self esteem thanks to the concept of ”a job well done”. Our efforts are rewarded with a beautiful garment which is unique and unrepeatable, made by yourself! Is there any greater satisfaction?

As well as the psychological benefits, its been shown that knitting helps to reduce blood pressure, strengthen the immune system and improve mobility problems.
