When we're knitting, all is right with the world!

Yesterday I was at my doctor's office and I brought her a copy of my latest book, Jil Eaton's Knitting School: The Complete Guide to Becoming a Confident Knitter. She is a big knitter as was another of her colleagues. We were all chatting about knitting, and what a wonderful pastime it is. I mentioned that for 18 years I've been putting the slogan, "When we're knitting all is right with the world," at the end of all my patterns. My doctor was delighted with that, and said that there's science behind the concept. Apparently when we're knitting, our bodies create serotonin, which is a natural mood enhancer. So I encourage you all to pick up your needles and knit!
