Sometimes it can be hard to sit and relax. Our busy lifestyles tell us we should always be working towards something. However, this mindset can be counterproductive for our mental health and leave us a frazzled mess. Knitting allows for guilt-free downtime that still feels productive.
Sense of pride
One of those small happinesses that makes life just that more enjoyable. Seeing the fruits of your labour and painstakingly working through process will make the end product that much sweeter.
Sometimes during the process of creating, something magical happens and we find ourselves in a state of flow. Not only is flow beneficial for positive emotions, but it also enhances our capacity for creativity.
Colour combinations, patterns, altering techniques. There is no limit to what you can create.
Time to think
Much like meditation, knitting gives us time to process thoughts in a non-judgmental way.
Sweet handmade gifts
What better present to receive than something made from the heart? Need I say more?
The end result
Need an extra cozy winter sweater? A case for your phone? Some throw pillows for that new apartment? Guess what? You can make them all.
Today´s mentality is focused on growth. What better way to grow than to add a new skill set to your repertoire?
Do it anytime, anywhere
On the train, in a park, during a roadtrip. Just throw your needles and thread into an extra chic tote (click here) and you´re ready to go
Not just for grandmas
Yes, this is the number one misconception of knitting. It is true that many grandma´s love it, and I will be candid in saying that my incredibly talented grandma was the one who introduced me to the hobby. But who says you have to be a grandma to knit? Today, there are so many modern patterns to choose. Plus you can knit while watching Girls and show off your progress on insta.
