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.
way to help myself and feel better. A real feel good factor boost
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.
