I know you are looking at this and thinking "Y, Cris... you are still at Y? This meme is over!"
Well, I know I'm a couple weeks behind. I would like to throw out my schedule but I know I'm not the only busy person in the universe, so I will digress and just get the Y post over with so I can move on to Z *laughs*
Hmmm maybe you could look at it as I am extending a fun meme :P
So what in the world does the word young have to do with crochet?
I am going to say that crochet helps keep you young. Yup - I believe it.
Ok, it may not stop you physically from aging, but I do think crochet offers benefits to people to assist with physical and mental well-being that helps keep the mind alert and the fingers nimble. All it takes is a quick search on Google News to get a list of people well into their 90s and 100s helping others through crochet. I have known several elderly people who crochet and they always seem to have aged better than their counterparts.
I know I'll be crocheting my entire life - from age 5 to whenever the good Lord calls me home. Could it be an influence to my life and how I lived it? Can I attribute some of my good health to crochet? I know the stress and anxiety relief it offers when I'm moving towards a panic attack. I would like to think it has stimulated me mentally and allowed me to grow intellectually beyond if I had not crocheted and I would like to think it has offered some to my general good health.
So, what do you think?
