Crochting wire and your brain

Occasionally people that see my work for the firs time would stop by either virtually or in real life and say, WOW you are so patient !!! I could never do that... For their astonishment  i tell them they couldn't be more wrong, I'm a rather active person that can't really stay still for too long.Crocheting is surprisingly calming , its my meditation . This is also why I refuse to refer to my jewelry  wire crocheting as work, so what if its a source of income.When I started giving my workshops i learned i wasnt alone there, many of the woman i meet say it gives them this very same feeling, especially with the designs that require more crocheting then assembling, such as the Cleopatra necklace, the YoolaCuff or the YoolaTube necklace. But all this i already knew , what surprised me was that the other day when i was talking to a colleague about my wire crocheting addiction, he told me that studies show it also has benefits to the brain, (is that's why woman age better then man.... I wonder...). I googled it and learned that according to Neuroscientist Dr. Yonas Geda from the Mayo Clinic, these activities seem to be neuro-protective and have been shown to reduce memory loss in later years by as much as 50%. he says that these activities also help to: Lower stress Reduce pain Reduce symptoms of depression Boost your immune system Lower your blood pressure enjoy your crocheting, knitting, sewing :)

The YoolaKnitter is still a baby just born which means we know very little about him yet, personally and unfortunately I had very little time to explore its potential since its launch BUT.... see what the early birds came up with !

Sounds like a  bombastic title ? as you will soon see I think you will think so too ... After two years of research and development we are finally ready to launch the YoolaKnitter, the road was long and bumpy and we almost gave up more than once but we are happy to announce we reached our goal.
