One of my favorite aspects of knitting and crochet is that once you master the basic skills, it’s easy to select projects based on the experience you want to have. If you’re bored and need a challenge, select a project that presents new skills for you to learn. If you’re overwhelmed or stressed out, select a project that doesn’t require a lot of thought or attention. We often meet people in the Studio who are turning to knit or crochet to get through stressful times, deal with grief, quit smoking and more. If they’re coming to us as beginners we have to explain that the learning process is not always stress free, so there’s an initial hurdle of skill development to clear before they can access the benefits.
Knit & Crochet Therapist in the House
We are lucky enough to have Tarz Palomba as one of our regular crochet teachers because she is also a licensed psychoanalyst who uses crochet as part of her therapeutic approach. She has developed a new workshop to help those with basic knit or crochet skills understand how to use those skills more deliberately when they need stress relief.
