Yes , I mean it , its not just a slogan , wire crocheting will keep you calm !
the repetitive motion , that keeps both hands busy, puts you into a soothing state of mind, it could have been easily called crochet meditation, ha ha.
For those of you less familiar with the origin of this trendy poster , I found the best info on wikipedia , where else....
"Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 in preparation for the Second World War. The poster was intended to raise the morale of the British public, threatened with widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. Although 2.45 million copies were printed, and although the Blitz did in fact take place, the poster was hardly ever publicly displayed and was little known until a copy was rediscovered in 2000. It has since been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products."
The original and first keep calm poster was the one here below,
