There is a lot of new research coming out on mindfulness, focus, and the therapeutic benefits of repetitive motion... no one [else] has put it all together when it comes to knitting—so I thought I should.
McLean, VA (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
Heather Ordover, host of CraftLit® podcast and editor of the What Would Madame Defarge Knit? series will be in Boston this weekend to speak on knitting and its effects on the mind Friday night, May 10 at MIT's Stata Center before teaching her signature Sock Heel System on Saturday, May 11 in MIT's Building E51.
"There is a lot of new research coming out on mindfulness, focus, and the therapeutic benefits of repetitive motion," Ordover says. "As far as I know, no one has put it all together when it comes to knitting—so I thought I would."
And why teach something as basic as sock heels? "Saggy socks with heels that don't hug are no fun," Ordover says. "I've developed a system by which knitters can make and test a variety of heels, discover their perfect one, then leave with worksheets and knowledge allowing them to substitute the perfect heel into any sock pattern to fit whomever the sock is for."
Ordover speaks at 7pm on Friday, May 10, at the Stata Center at MIT. All are welcome.
The full-day workshop on Saturday, May 11 from 9 am to 4pm will be in MIT’s Building E51 and can be broken down to just the morning half of the workshop for a lower price.
Class is close to the Kendall Square T stop. Free parking is available Saturday in the E51 lot. Sign up information can be found on the Common Cod Fiber Guild website.
