Need another excuse for knitting?

According to research at the Mayo Clinic, knitting is believed to delay memory loss. An article published in BBC News states that "Those who had during middle age been busy reading, playing games or engaging in craft hobbies like patchworking or knitting were found to have a 40% reduced risk of memory impairment."

Even though I've decided that "middle age" doesn't begin before 70, I'm adding this to my list of reasons why I love getting my knitting on!
