Excerpted from Knitting for Better Health by Amy James
"Knitting has been compared to yoga, for its ability to induce a relaxed meditative state. It is rhythmic and calming. Watching a beautiful yarn become something new is gratifying. Feeling a soft warm fiber in your hands is comforting. Your mind becomes calm and you can think clearly, creatively.
Knitting can also improve self-esteem. Creating something beautiful, no matter how simple makes you feel good about yourself. It is a creative outlet that can be learned rather quickly. Knowing just the basics will enable the knitter to make something useful and lovely."
