When you knit, you have to control various factors. You have to calculate the necessary thread meters, rounds and stitches number… This means you have to apply basic maths. This stimulates the logical part of our brains. So, you keep it young thanks to this mental gym.

Knitting is a process that needs patience, perseverance and self-discipline. So, you can develop these appreciated qualities. And, of course, you stimulate your creativity, as all the handcrafts.
