April is National Stress Awareness Month. There are many different types of stress, all of which can cause significant mental and physical distress for those undergoing the strain. Crochet has the power to help combat stress and its associated issues.
This is the motto of a group of ambitious knitters who will drop thousands of hand-knit/-crocheted lemon stress balls into the hands of frazzled New Yorkers on one of the most stressful days of the year, Tax Day (which ironically happens to land during National Stress Awareness Month). On Monday, April 18th people rushing last-minute to the James A. Farley Post Office Building in Manhattan to wait in line to mail their 2015 Tax Returns by the due date and filing deadline will be met with a sunny surprise and important message… knitting and crochet are good for you.
