A healthy knitter is a #HappyKnitter!

Knitting is not only a great hobby and craft, it’s also linked to improving mental and physical health. From arthritis relief to memory improvement, it’s been proven that knitting works wonders for your mind and body!

Over the past couple months, we’ve had so many amazing projects uploaded to the community with the HotTag #HappyKnitter. You’ve shared your stories about how knitting has helped you through rough times, or improved your wellbeing, and we’ve loved reading each and every one of them.

    It is hard to express how touching all the Happy Knitter ‘stories’ are, only they are real life, not stories and inspiring to read. I love to knit and it helps me to relax and to distract me from pain but reading about other peoples struggles makes me realise that the knitting community is so important In so many ways. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who shared their experiences.

    I must be doing something wrong! I click on the photos and all I get is pattern information. Even after I “sign in” there is NO story, no explanation, nothing but a basically blank page under the photo and the general info in the left side bar area. The other replies talk about great stories, but I got none!
