Thanks for posting this information!!
Back in 2004, Elsebeth Lavold (Swedish designer noted for Viking Knits) told us that she read a study that said knitting helps our brains re-order themselves. Kinda like a Magic Maid who comes into your home and straightens up your kitchen after you've cooked a 12-course dinner for 12 people!
I'm glad that you posted an actual article we can refer to!
