Calm and crochet

Feeling blue?

Ready for the world to get back to some sort of recognizable normal?

Anxious about things out of your control?

Have you thought about taking up knitting and crocheting?

There has actually been scientific research which suggests knitting and crocheting increases happiness and provides therapeutic relief from depression and chronic pain, and helps to improve motor skills of patients with Parkinsons.

As recent as 2020, Burns and Van Der Meer published a study which included over 8,000 respondents who participated in surveys over a 6-week period of time to determine the relationship between knitting and crochet and well-being. Their study concludes with the statement that most respondents believe they experience an improvement in their well-being after crocheting.
