10.) Yarn doesn't nod and ask you how you feel about that.
9.) You don't have to work through your issues.. you can just poke things with pointy sticks
8.) You can get more than one hour of yarn therapy for that $350
7.) You don't blame your mother for all of your knitting mistakes
6.) It is perfectly acceptable to conduct your yarn therapy at Starbucks.. psychotherapy, not so much
5.) The only shock therapy you endure is with wool, metal needles, and a fast hand
4.) The only chemicals you put into your body are tea, coffee, martinis, or chocolate.. and you can take them DURING therapy
3.) Your insurance premiums won't increase
2.) You can enjoy yarn therapy on vacation; in your jammies; in bed; on the train/bus/subway; in the park; or at work (secretly).

AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON KNITTING IS BETTER THAN THERAPY IS.....








1.) You can't fondle your therapist :rofl:

I never thought of that. I should blame my mother for all my knitting mistakes.

You can if she is talking to you while you are counting stitches for lace knitting!:teehee:

In my case that would be one hell of a long distance bill. Do they have phones in Heaven? LOL!

I can blame my mom...she taught me how to knit...JK....

and I didn't have to secretly knit at work...my boss was all for it...especially when she ended up with the odd hat or baby sweater for her grandkid!

There would be ppl who would tell you different about the fondling...(I am not one of them...)

haha I LOVE IT :) I do have to say, though, that knitting DURING therapy is quite effective, as well!

That's great. :teehee:

One of my standard lines when someone asks about my knitting is "It's cheaper than therapy".

Funny. I work as a billing specialist for a mental health hmo, and I have seen weirder things! (like someone billing workers' comp for therapy!):roflhard:

That's too funny!

I wish I could get more of my patients to knit - I'd happily change my position from "group therapist" to "group knitter instructor-type person." Maybe we could lobby the insurance companies?:teehee:
