“Knitting is really good for your mental health — despite the moments when you think that it’s the opposite. It’s a great way to practice being successful, tackle problems without fearing terrible consequences, and watch yourself getting things done. Seeing these things on a small scale, like with knitting, can help you see them in the rest of your life.”
— Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka the Yarn Harlot
I like how she uses the phrase practice being successful. Because I am clearly out of practice.
