Knitting is a wonderful fine motor exercise and it often provides an almost 'meditative' like experience. Avid knitters will know that once the movements of the hands become automatic there is a sense of relaxation that comes from repeating these rhythmic motions. Knitting can therefore be a great hobby for a child who needs that balance of being engaged while still 'switching off' from the stress of modern life. A child can feel a great sense of accomplishment by moving through those stages from initially needing 100% concentration to attempt the techniques for the first time, through to the satisfaction of mastery.
