Episode 22 - Knitting to Heal



In which I show off my Intention Knitting KAL progress, Laurie sweater progress and finished Reyna shawl. You get to take a look at my recent purchase from KnitMona as well as one of my new Sweater Quantity offerings “Sand Dollar”. I also discuss the reasons why some of us knit and how knitting can contribute to and even be therapy, in addition to all its other benefits. EMDR therapy is discussed.
