The Giving Season has begun! This season of gratitude draws us to think about how we can help those facing stressful situations find wellness, comfort, and community through knitting. Project Knitwell continues to expand our reach and receive more national recognition, through participation at Vogue Knitting Live and the National Organization for Arts in Health. We look forward to continuing to share our mission and expand on research related to knitting for wellness.

We have some exciting new connections focused on developing an Introduction to Knitting for Wellness program to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue amongst nurses, doctors, and teachers. We are also focused on developing opportunities for students pursuing these professions to learn how to knit as a lifelong wellness tool.

A new connection at the University of Delaware, where this month we helped connect more than 30 nursing students with knitting for wellness, shared with us:

“The best part, I think, was the connection students were able to make between knitting and its potential to offer peace of mind; that there is research that supports its importance in stressful times. That’s a gift that will stay with them. My favorite quote from a student was “Knitting is so much better than scrolling. I’ve been spending a lot less time on my phone.”

We hope you will join us in supporting the many hospital patients, caregivers, teens facing mental health challenges, recently incarcerated individuals, Afghan refugees, and others learning the healing power of knitting. Join us in bringing more visibility to knitting as a wellness tool and develop plans for research to prove the benefits scientifically!
