More Knitting in the News

I just read another awesome article about the power of knitting, crocheting, and other forms of crafting. It’s nice to see some more recognition of what we’ve always known. 🙂

The article is here on CNN (it’s called “This is your brain on knitting”), and there’s a good discussion about it on the Knit Picks Facebook page.

I’ve been working on projects intermittently – it’s been such a crazy couple of weeks! I’m hoping to finish my sparkly broomstick lace scarf soon – a picture of my progress is on Instagram. I’ll share yarn details in an upcoming post!

Knitting in the News: Knitting Through Grief

I came across this interesting article about how C.J. Arabia got into knitting while mourning the loss of her mother.

Arabia says “knitting is a way to just kind of float. You’re floating with the waves, just bobbing up and down. That’s how the stitches are for me. That’s all you can think about.”

A lot of people comment about how meditative and therapeutic knitting can be. For me, it entirely depends on the project. What about you?
