Introduction
The Craft Yarn Council has aggregated anecdotal and clinical data related to the health benefits of knitting and crochet for the past 10 years, and it now wants to share this information with a broader audience. The data collected shows how these crafts can improve one's mood, mind and body. For the very young, knitting and crochet help improve fine motor skills; for millions of working adults, they help to calm them down and relieve stress; and for seniors, these skills have been found to keep the mind alert and lessen the onset of dementia. The therapeutic benefits are many, from lessening the effects of burnout, chronic pain, long hospital stays and grief. Because of the broad distribution of yarn and related accessories, these crafts are assessable to people in every economic level, are relatively easy to learn and portable.
