Did you know that according to research at the Harvard affiliated Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine, the repetitive motion and focus of needlework can elicit what’s known as the relaxation response – a calming meditation-like state that slows heart rate and causes blood pressure to drop.  In addition, a study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society suggests that knitting is associated with a lower risk of dementia for those 65 and older.

It’s good for your health and its also enjoyable!
