Just in Case You Needed an Excuse...

...to knit more, my mom sent me an article recently about the health benefits of knitting.

Knitters and crocheters already know that working on our fibrous crafts alleviate anxiety and depression (depending on the project... Haha!) but the article also mentions arthritis and tendonitis prevention among knitting's other virtues.

You can read the article here.

I might also take the opportunity to mention that knitting is an essential survival skill for the zombie apocalypse, or any apocalypse for that matter. You won't have stores for getting your clothing when we're overrun by zombies and if you have the misfortune to come across one, you can use those sharp needles or hooks for self defense.

Have a wonderful weekend!
