The Unexpected Effects of Knitting

PBS has offered comprehensive entertaining video insight into the many benefits of knitting. Knitting is a regular part of Waldorf school curricula. All students learn in first grade and continue with knitting projects at least through fifth grade. The video reveals, “activities like knitting also use several areas of your brain involving functions like paying attention, planning, processing sensory and visual information, storing memories, and coordinating precision and timing of movement.” Watch the three minute video on the PBS video website.
