Knitting every day keeps snacking away!!
Knitting every day keeps depression and being lonely away. I also crochet and enjoy both knitting and crocheting. I also have something lovely when I am finished. I am currently knitting a sweater and will have the pleasure of wearing it once it is finished.
It keeps the frenetic mind clutter away.
is that 34 sts for cable and 34 sts for rib pattern if not how do you divide it up if both require 34 sts
I would say for me- – – -all of the above plus loneliness. I am lost in time when I am knitting or crocheting. So the time and emptiness of my home is not noticeable. Thank you for the great patterns.
Love and Light, ‘C’
Keep my mine busy and very relaxing.
Knitting every day keeps me happy and productive. So, I guess it keeps the unhappiness and boredom away!-)
Stress Knitting calms me
the blues away…
I’m actually not really sure – it just is a fun and relaxing thing to do when I have extra time on my hands.
Pain away – keeps my muscles moving
Boredom. especially when waiting. Also anger at unnecessary waiting.
Exactly! No one can waste my time if I can knit.
Knitting keep the doldrums away!
I’d say stiff hands, inactivity, mental sleepiness, even cold if I work on a big enough project. This scarf is wonderful. Thank you.
It keeps racing thoughts, anxiety and depression away.
depression and self-doubt.
reaching for snacks away, lol
keeps the boredom away, that is if I could knit very well, instead I can say that for crochet, since I can do that very well.
tension and anxiety
It keeps Stress away. Thanks for fixing this for us!
Thanks for opening this up to non-subscribers. For me Knitting fills the need to create, so I guess it keeps away uncreativity?
the crazies of life.
