Welcome to the Why I Knit podcast! My name is Dr Mia Hobbs and I am a Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about the mental health benefits of knitting. Each episode of the podcast I interview a different knitter about why they knit and the (k)nitty gritty of how it impacts their mental wellbeing. I have an inspiring and diverse range of knitters lined up who have generously shared their stories with me. You can follow me on Instagram @knittingistherapeutic and get more information on the therapeutic benefits of knitting at my website

  • Grief knitting

    I began listening to this podcast just a few weeks ago. My knitting group and I have had many a conversations about how we get so much mental health benefit from our craft. One woman lives with a husband with Alzheimer’s, another is a new widow, another with chronic illness. Personally, I lost two brothers last year and a dear friend, all to illness. I wove , knit, crocheted, spun, anything with my hands. This host and the conversation is right in the mark about knitting for mental health.

  • Politics and knitting. Not for me

    I began listening to this podcast with episode 3. I wish I had not. This episode contains political talk. I try to escape the political world through my knitting. That is why I knit (a break from this nasty politically polarized world). The idea behind this podcast really fascinated me but I’m afraid to listen on.
