Ask any knitter for his/her motivation, and you’ll get a wide variety of responses. It’s a great stress reliever, as the process can be very relaxing and therapeutic. Some knitters are “process” knitters and some focus on the end object. Well, some folks at Cardiff University in the UK are performing an anonymous survey, and they could use your help!

Stitchlinks and Cardiff University have launched an online survey which looks at the impact of knitting on physical, mental and social wellbeing. The results will form part of a series of formal studies into the therapeutic benefits of knitting and will be published.

Here’s a PDF with more info on the study.
