Abstract

The occupation of hand knitting, rich in historical significance (MacDonald, 1988), has resurged in contemporary society as a popular leisure occupation (Marer, 2002; McAdams, 2001). Engagement in meaningful occupations contributes to one’s health and well-being (Christiansen & Townsend, 2004) and has been shown to be related to satisfaction of a variety of psychological needs (e.g. affiliation, self-expression) (Tinsley & Eldredge, 1995). While occupational science literature includes examinations of the complexities of a variety of leisure occupations, there is a lack of scientific information exploring hand knitting.
