My crochet Part 1

Standard

Just thought I’d share some of my crochet with you. I’m no expert or artisan. I do it because I enjoy the creative experience – you may be able to buy ready made stuff cheaper (and better made!) but that’s not the point.

The process of turning a strand of yarn into a blanket, a toy, a bag, is truly magical. I cherish this skill. There are many things in life that I can’t do but this is something that I can hold to my heart and be proud of.

I can tell you now that when people use the #crochettherapy … They really mean it. Doing crochet is an act of mindfulness, a bit like going climbing, you are in the moment and you have to concentrate on what you are doing. Crochet gives me a brief respite from all the shite that bubbles around in my brain.

Love, tea, hugs and many balls of yarn

    Hello E. Don’t know how you’re going on with the blanket, but I’d just like to say it’s a brilliant idea! I’m going to take up your idea and have a go myself. Must learn to crochet first! Thank you.

    • Excellent news!

      Blanket is almost finished but lost my hook on the bus this morning 😦

      I learnt to crochet by buying a book teaching crochet to children!
