How the Mindful Collection is here to change Knitting?
The knitting craft is just another way to practice mindfulness. It has been proven by many scientific studies, that knitting has numerous mental health benefits. According to psychologists, knitting induces a measurable “relaxation response” in your brain, comparable to the effects of meditation. When we knit, we focus on the rhythmic actions of our knitting needles and the smooth flow of yarn running through our fingers and the repetitive movement of our hands. With this continuous practice, you slowly experienced the calming effect of the craft. Once you make knitting your habit, you will find that you experience mindfulness every moment with the craft.
If you have felt too anxious or nervous to practice meditation or yoga in the past, knitting may be your guide on your road to finding tranquility and peace. So why not take knitting? The Mindful Knitting Collection has everything to support you on your journey.
Let us show you, how:
Stainless Steel Knitting Needles
Stainless steel is the choice for all the knitting needles in the Mindful Collection. The double points have smooth tips on both ends. The fixed circular and interchangeable circular knitting needles are perfectly tapered to work with all kinds of yarn. The material is entirely recyclable and leaves a carbon footprint close to 0. Besides, the smooth surface allows knitters to knit without hassle. The strong, rust-resistant material is a choice that will serve you a lifetime.
The Mindful knitting needles have an inspiring mindful word on each tip, unique to a size that guides you in your mindfulness routine. Each needle bears a laser-printed ‘mantra’, such as breathe, exhale, relax, dream, serene, or explore. These words subconsciously guide you on being in the moment. When knitting with the needles you focus on the word and let your mind delve into its meaning.
Soothing Teal Shade
The entire Mindful Collection displays various shades of subtle teal. The turquoise hues of our needle cords, accessories and bags induce calmness and relaxation. The colours have been consciously chosen as they are particularly easy on the eye and are said to be creative, serene and emotionally balanced. Being usually associated with a calmer, rather reflective mood, teal also evokes optimism and spiritual enlightenment.
The Mindful Collection is represented the blooming lotus, a sacred and ancient symbol of rebirth and resurrection. Born out of the depth of muddy waters, the lotus flower opens its shiny petals every morning just like the rising sun. The ancient seven chakras have also been used in the collection as stitch markers.
