This is a terrific article. You’ve articulated the knitting experience so well. It takes me back to the time when I was just starting out on my own and knitting was my greatest source of comfort, self efficacy, and reassurance. You should know that this article is making its way around art therapy circles. I first saw it courtesy of several fellow art therapists, who post on Facebook. Much of what you say about the experience of crafting something also applies with artmaking.
