Knitting Soothes The Troubled Spirit

Crafty Like Granny Quote

Relaxation and knitting. This quote, sums it up beautifully...

“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
― Elizabeth Zimmermann

My very first Crafty Like Granny newsletter linked to an article about the health benefits of knitting and a recent study has shown that knitting, crocheting and jam making improves mental health.

With Christmas fast approaching, the weeks leading up to it can be overwhelming.  Taking time out for some craft may just help.
This week's newsletter has some inspiration and a feel good story about an elderly gentleman who knits hats for the homeless. Take a look...
