Benefits of yarn crafts for anxiety and depression

depressionresource:

This is one of those posts that comes most directly from my own experience. Obviously, nothing in-and-of-itself can cure depression, and I am not making that claim. However, I personally find knitting and crochet to be a good band-aid, for a few reasons:

  • It’s pretty easy to learn (I taught myself through Youtube) but there are always new things to learn, giving you an attainable challenge
  • Gives you something to feel accomplished about when you finish a project
  • Gives you something active and creative you can do on days when you still can’t get off the couch
  • Make yourself something cozy, like a huge blanket, to comfort yourself
  • Make someone else a gift to show your appreciation for them
  • Possible source of income that doesn’t have any set hours
  • To distract myself during panic attacks, I mentally go through the steps of a stitch in my head

Rav: Leftovers Cowl by Wendy Johnson
Description: 
“This is the perfect project to use up those many small odds and ends of sock yarn you have collected over the years. Or a perfect excuse for buying multiple mini-skeins of fingering weight yarn!
This project is designed as a cowl, starting with a provisional cast-on and knit in the round so you can graft the beginning stitches to the end stitches to make a perfect tube. You could also make a scarf, binding off each end separately.
The cowl takes 1300 yards in Color A and 1300 yards in Color B. The cowl shown used 650 grams of left over sock and fingering weight wool and wool blend yarn in many, many different colors. ”

I want to knit this. YUM!!
