Crochet Quote: Tinkering of hands

Today’s crochet quote is by Celia Barbour from an article titled Shear Beauty in the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Living. The article is about teaching a child to knit but obviously applies to crochet as well.

“She might have entered the endeavor merely with the hope of having something soft and snuggly to wear the next time she heads out in the cold, but she will likely walk away from it with the realization that the tiny, tinkering activity of her hands also works wonders for her mind. In other words, she’ll be hooked.”
