Knitting when I am depressed helps a lot or when I am angry. I find if
I knit, I count stitches and it keeps me from thinking too much. It
certainly helped me through many, many a bad year. I don't know if it
lifted my spirits but it enabled me to get through the bad times.
I often wonder about people who say knitting is relaxing. I don't find
it relaxing but I am incapable of sitting and doing nothing.
