Why a teal scarf?
Among other things, teal is an internationally recognized colour to represent Military Sexual Trauma and PTSD.
Knitting has it's own benefits as well. A bit like playing a video games, knitting is a great way to stay focus in the present and practice mindfulness. Many police and fire stations started to knit to help coping with stressful situations.
