Back on April 3 the CBS Early Show reported that knitting is good for your mental health. Actually, any somewhat repetitve task that makes you think has the benefit of keeping your mind nimble and could fight off dementia. What they didn't say is whether the cursing that may occur when you drop a stitch or mess up a pattern is also helpful.
I believe that my cursing has benefits at it is somewhat repetitive and makes me think of new ways to express my thoughts on my errors.
So .... if you catch one of my tirades be happy that I fighting off dimentia rather than shocked by my original verbal phrases.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
