DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

What do you feel when you're stressed or depressed? You feel empty of solution, perhaps. One good quality of knitting is that it occupies you. When you're occupied, you are less vulnerable to the pain you feel. Your mind is filled with something that requires attention and detail and thus, you forget that something else is not right.

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Another good quality that knitting gives off is its ability to calm the mind. When you start knitting, your meditation is honed and practices of mindfulness are generated. These are employed by the medical community to ease chronic pain. Stress is relieved while knitting slows down your mind processes which in turn improve concentration. Great information, isn't it?

Well, as most knitters know, knitting lets you master the art of rhythmic movement. A great therapy sooths its patients and the rhythmic movement that knitting offers is soothing. Simple or complicated patterns can both engage the mind and increase concentration, a positive way to soothe.

To top all of that, knitting itself is creative. Knitting allows a room to gauge your creative minds to explore. Finishing a piece of pattern makes one feel proud and accomplished. The patterns invite the minds to be creative and imaginative. Every piece of work you finish builds joy that is absorbed in every fiber that the knitter welds.
