The first meeting was a great success for everyone and a great fun. There were diligent, instructions and ideas are exchanged and made new acquaintances. If you had a problem, was not alone with this and was quickly helped him. To work on the own piece, get tips, or to replace just more fun in good company.

Whether knitting or crochet, “the joy of the hobby of hand work is rediscovered”, so also the initiative crafted advertises on its Web site. But knitting is not only fun, but is also training for the hemispheres of the brain: “in the recent brain research great importance in the development of learning behavior is measured to immediate sense experience and own concrete action.

Manual labor is not just pure activity, but a significant contribution to the development of the brain, because the child practice here coordinated fine motor movements, it fulfills the characteristics of different materials and learn to harmoniously combine shapes and colors. Just imagine what complex manoeuvre to a single stitch knitting is necessary: only the right needle through the stitch that is still on the left needle, then draw the thread through the mesh stretched over the left index finger and then only this one from the left to the right needle slide. Then it goes again from scratch, until a long series is knit and the knitting tools can be used.
