Here’s How Hand Knitting and Parenting are Alike!

There are so many things knitting teaches us, but have you ever wondered about the similarities between parenting and knitting? Here’s all that knitting and parenting have in common:

  1. There’s a steep learning curve.
    Much like parenting, it may take a lot of practice before you feel confident enough to be able to say that you’re any good at what you do. In fact, it’s probably easier to master the technique than to be able to figure out parenting.For some, it may come easier than it does for others, you’ll end up making tons of mistakes either way.  Eventually, after a while, things will come to you naturally.
  2. Patience is the key.
    Most people end up quitting knitting mid-way, out of sheer frustration, saying it’s just not made for them. Most people are also not born with the level of patience that knitting requires; the practice creates the patience. None of us are born “knitting people.” It is similar with parenting. You don’t know what patience truly means until you’re bringing up your own child.
  3. You’ll pick up little tricks along the way.
    Dropped a stitch? No problem; you can knit it back up. The possibilities for learning tricks are endless. You’ll similarly learn lessons and tricks that make parenting.
  4. Every project is different with a new experience.
    You can use the same yarn for two different projects and have very different experiences. There are so many variables involved— needle size, fiber content—that you can never really expect the same results. The same is true for children: Each one is unique, and we as parents are shaped into different people along the way, as well.
  5. Your tea has probably gone cold.
    Be it knitting or a crying child, your attention will be pulled elsewhere. Get used to reheating your hot beverage over and over and over. Or simpler, just, learn to love it at room temperature.

Various studies across the globe show interesting effects of using our fingers (read hands) for either cell phone or hand knitting. As the usage of cell phones is increasing, we must know its side effects too, if any. Read on and tell us if you agree.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF EXCESSIVE PHONE TIME?

  • Can cause depression, anxiety, and insomnia
  • Has a negative impact on concentration levels resulting in distraction from the task at hand
  • Exposure to disturbing news can lead to psychological effects
  • Too much social media can make you jealous of others

But using within limits has its own advantages like being in the know of the world events and staying connected with friends and family.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF KNITTING?

  • Helps you focus on the present moment
  • Gives a sense of personal control
  • Makes you feel enthusiastic and happy
  • Gives a sense of achievement and creative satisfaction
  • Keeps your brain sharp and can slow the effects of aging on your brain
  • Knitting is good for your heart! Knitting and crocheting can lower heart rate and blood pressure.

 

Here’s what we propose, pick up hand knitting and knit a new cell phone cover!
