    This video talks about how crochet is wonderful therapy. One thing I know
    for sure, it has helped me through though times with the loss if an infant
    son and years as a military spouse. As much as I love teaching on YouTube,
    sometimes I have to set the video recording aside and just crochet for me.
    In those times, I make hats and scarves for the homeless. Making the
    stitches put things back in perspective and shut off the chatter. Share
    your experiences if you are comfortable talking about them.

    I learned to crochet in college 3 years ago. I started teaching classes
    last year. I cannot knit or crochet anymore because I over stressed my
    hands because I love it so much. It makes me sad watching this video,
    because I want to pick up my hooks again but my hands lock up

    when I broke my ankle I took my knitting with me. I knitted while waiting
    for the dr to come help me in the ER

    Couldn’t agree more! Knit and crochet have therapeutic benefits to mood,
    mind and body. Now we have a scientific evidence.

    I was fresh out of the hospital after a nervous breakdown and I decided to
    pick up knitting as a hobby. I feel like it saved my life… it helped me
    focus on things that wouldn’t lead me into a downwards spiral of
    depression. I also found a new purpose with my life and have taken my love
    for knitting as far as learning to spin, weave and dye various fibres. So I
    can definitely agree that knitting has a lot of great benefits!

    crocheting. Go grab your knitting and crochet and enjoy the show. (… it
    is about 12 minutes long.

    I have been a counselor for over forty years and crocheting for over twenty
    and I completely agree that it is therapeutic.

    My mom knitted and crocheted for most of her life until last couple of
    years when her hands failed her. She was one sharp lady. My daughter
    learned from my mom…
