Knitting & Crocheting for Your Home

The stereotypical knitter is often associated with old grandmothers who knit you itchy Christmas sweaters, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Knitting and crocheting is for everyone! In fact there are proven health benefits of knitting and crocheting. It relieves stress, alleviates symptoms of anxiety and depression, improves motor functions and slows cognitive decline! There are even knitting therapy programs such as Knit to Quit to help smokers stop and Knit to Heal for people coping with health issues. Don’t know how to knit? There are tons of videos on Youtube that can help you get started (that’s how I learned!) or head to our How-to section.

To encourage the younger DIY generation, I’ve gathered some unique projects that you can knit or crochet to decorate your space. These aren’t your traditional scarves, hats, sweaters and mittens. Think decorative pillows, cute fruit coasters, ombre lampshade covers, rugs, bohemian pot wraps and much more!
