Reasons You Should Learn How to Crochet
Don’t know how to crochet? It’s never too late to learn. The exciting thing is that you can start at just about any age, and it’s a gender-neutral activity so literally anyone can enjoy it. Here are just a couple of reasons you should start learning right now.
It’s great for your health
Did you know that a study was conducted on crocheting and knitting? Yes, you read that right. The good news? Older people who engaged in crocheting or knitting showed diminished chances of developing mild cognitive impairment and memory loss. On top of that, these people were paired against a control group that read newspapers, listened to music, and practiced other similar hobbies. Surprisingly, crocheting and knitting proved far more beneficial than everything else. They stimulate your brain, thus enhancing it and your health.
You can save a ton of money on gifts
For just $20, you can get a nice set of basic yarn balls and a crochet hook. Then, with a little time on your hands, you can craft hand-made gifts for those you love. You’ll no longer have to spend too much money to give them something that they’ll remember. Instead, you can make it yourself and you’ll be sure that they’ll cherish it knowing it’s coming from you and, not only that, it was made by you with love and tender care.
It’s excellent for dealing with stress
Crocheting can give you a sense of calmness, just like any other activity that involves repetitive yet satisfying actions. Forget those stress balls and other gimmicky toys that claim to calm your nerves. Crocheting is both productive and relaxing. With that being said, it’s also a great way to make yourself feel less guilty by wasting too much time on the computer or on the TV.
Find a Crochet Pattern that Suits your Needs and Style
Do you need a new jacket or a cover-up that will be worn on the beach? Spend time making your own through crocheting. It will not only save you money, you will also be guaranteed that it is carefully made, it can withstand possible wear and tear, compared to the stuff you can get from the store. By adding personal touches, wearing a crochet will also bring out your character and style, and will portray your real self to everyone.
Now if you think these crochet patterns are not for you yet you still want to do something else while trying to fall asleep, you might want to try coloring books or designing scrapbooks. These are equally fun and relaxing activities that you will enjoy!
