A Mississippi elementary-school teacher says her students have gained confidence through a knitting club she started this year. "Research is showing emotional and educational benefits to this art form," she said. "The repetitive movements and patterns are calming. As I watch beginning knitters master the knitting process, I see their confidence in their abilities, as well as their pride in their achievements, grow. That confidence and pride in accomplishments open the door for a student's willingness to try new things."
