  • If you have high blood pressure, don't try to knit! Your bp will hit the sky! Crocheting on the other hand is wonderfully relaxing, and sufficiently complex to keep you interested, but not so complicated as to be frustrating. In addition, you can be making lots of neat things for the baby, and for yourself, too--even gifts to give people next holiday season. Imagine how impressed they will be that you made these wonderful, handmade items while you have been caring for a new baby. They will think you are wonder woman--You don't have to tell them you made them before the baby was born.
