Thursday September 6th

Learn to knit @ your Library

Why you should knit:

  • Take it With You: You can knit anywhere—waiting for appointments, travelling, really . . . anywhere!
  • Multi-Task to Your Heart’s Content: Knit while watching TV, listening to music or audiobooks, talking with friends, having a glass of wine.
  • Enforces Mindfulness Meditation: Knitting is calming, relaxing, and keeps us centred because of its repetitive rhythmic movements, which can help prevent and manage stress, pain and depression, which in turn strengthens the body’s immune system. Even the most complex knitting patterns are repetitive, based on combining two stitches—knit and purl.
  • Boost Your Memory: Studies show that side to side eye movements can significantly help boost memory.
