I suffer from recurring depression and have done for most of my life. I put on a "front"so most people who think they know me would ridicule this idea.. I am now in my late 80s and welcome the fact that I am nearing the end of my life. I have a good life and live with my daughter . I also have outside interests but of late these have become a chore instead of something to look forward to. My fingers have become stiff and I am in constant pain from arthritis in my knees,back and neck. I used to make bead jewellery for sale and free embroidery for a hobby. I also knitted professionally for many years -Men's heavy sweaters which did not do my arthritic hands much good., Aran patterns , Fair-Isle (which I loved) and Shetland.. I also adore sheep and goats. I'm too old for an Alpaca -more's the pity. Yesterday I discovered Knit for Health and Wellbeing., now I can hardly wait for tomorrow to raid our local workshop -as local as one can get in the country. Of course I can knit - I. used to be an expert but then it became something only sad old ladies did so I dropped it. I think I will learn to crochet -well why not?

a great book for all knitters, those with chronic, painful conditions to see how knitting can be beneficial as part of a pain management strategy. It is grounded in research and shares real stories of how knitting helps people cope when in pain, for whatever the reason and no matter how long the duration. It is very readable and a worthwhile addition to your stash of yarn and patterns.

I used to do a lot of knitting at one time and I'm thinking of taking it up again so I thought this book would be an interesting read. It will be of interest for anyone who has any sort of illness - whether mental or physical. Knitting is relaxing partly because it includes lots of repetitive actions and it keeps your conscious mind active and so stops you worrying about other things in your life.

The author has worked with people with all sorts of health problems and has found that knitting can help people in most cases. If you have mobility problems with your hands then short spells of knitting will keep your joints mobile. Depression can often be improved if people take up knitting. It can help people who get anxious in social situations and when travelling on public transport.

If you join a knitting group then the craft helps you meet other people in a 'safe' situation where you can join in or not with the conversation just as it suits you and in a way that feels comfortable. Knitting is an ice breaker and a conversation started when you're with strangers. Planning your knitting products keeps you focussed and gives you something to look forward to.

The author quotes from research which shows how beneficial knitting can be to anyone whether they are well or ill and it can be a life saver for people suffering from long term illness or disability and can actually help them to improve their health and reduce their medication. Whether you are well or ill knitting can help you and give you a hobby which can last a lifetime.

I enjoy knitting and have done for the majority of 25 years approx. I worried about repetitive strain injury and this book gave me a positive outcome with good advice and tips for a more enjoyable hobby and better use of skills and time. Learnt that it was ok to make mistakes!

I think this book is for anyone who has ever felt their life is out of balance. It is easy to read and has inspired me to get out my needles and start knitting again. I'm going to be looking to use more colourful and tactile yarns as part of the therapy.

This is a really repetitive read. The good points are there, hence the two stars, but they are made over and over, and it is not written well enough to conceal the fact that you're reading the same things repeatedly.

I'm a keen knitter, and already appreciate the de-stressing value of it, so I was excited to read this. I was intrigued to see the research results, and also to learn more about the health benefits of knitting. Sadly, there is nowhere near enough of the former in terms of hard data, although there are quite a lot of quotes from participants. As for the latter, there are some good points to be made, and they are made well enough, hence the two stars, but the whole thing could have been accomplished in a tenth of the word count. I should have liked it a great deal better and scored it higher if it had not pretended to be a book, but had presented itself as a report or other shorter document of the research work the author has done.

This book confirms what knitting has done for me. It doesn't matter if you can knit or not, the important thing is the process, the end product is a bonus.
