"First day ever of knitting! The app helped a lot. I learnt the cast on and knit stitches using the videos and am now half way through my scarf! I can't believe how easy Smart Knit It® make it! It's a very theraputic hobby that I'm going to take up."

Owen, Aberdeen

"All in all, Smart Knit It® is fantasic! I love it! Up until using Smart Knit It I had only done a one-sided cable pattern (because cables terrified me lol) and this made doing a complex cable pattern so simple! Can't wait for this to go live, I've already started my next pattern!

Jackie, Aberdeen

Knitting for Wellbeing

Knitting is a great way to calm your mind and reduce stress. It helps to focus on the present moment, reduces anxiety, depression, increase mindfulness and improve motor skills. Knitting is also a really great way to connect with others and build a sense of community - it really is a social hobby!

Knitting is perfect for relaxing and unwinding after a long day. Choose a soft, cozy yarn and a comfortable spot to sit and let your worries melt away as you work on your project. Smart Knit It® takes the stress and frustration out of knitting so all that's left is the joy of creating!
