Start Something New in 2018
If you are looking for a New Year’s resolution consider taking up yarning. Both knitting and crocheting have been shown to improve your health and make you feel happy at the same time. The rhythmic repetitive movements are reported to enhance the release of serotonin and raise your mood. There are programs that suggest taking up yarning to quit smoking and improve health conditions—who knew?
Of course, it may take a bit of practicing for beginners to reach this happy state. So I suggest, while you are with your knitting and crocheting relatives and friends this holiday season, you enlist their help in practicing the skill of your choice. Here are some of our easiest free patterns that you may like to try while on the road to yarning happiness.
