Of all of the crochet-related posts I read this week, these were the ones I thought you shouldn’t miss!

Before we dig in, though, just a reminder that sponsorship / advertising opportunities are now available on Crochet Concupiscence.

Something Special

I want to draw your attention to one of my crochet blog sponsors today.

Knitting in Recovery – One Stitch at a Time is a 501(c)3 non profit outreach program dedicated to teaching knitting to those recovering from substance abuse or other self destructive behaviors.

This group knits and crochet items for others in need to help not only those people but also to help themselves!

Something Else Special

I also wanted to remind you that Crochetville is doing a huge blog tour for (Inter)National Crochet Month with stops on at least one, and sometimes two, crochet blogs daily. Worth checking out; you can see the full schedule here.

Quote of the Week

“I cannot say how much my art has helped me personally in this journey. Even if I’m just rewinding yarn, the effects of creating something (even if it’s a crap doll or a new ball of yarn) is soothing. Life’s stress of whatever is going on quells, and the sad/mad/angry/overwhelmed feelings lessen their hold a little. The more I think about it, the more I am sure that I would not be in this stage of my life without my craft. Busy hands really do shush busy minds.” – Crocheter Knot by Gran’ma said this in a really beautiful post about how life gets tough and yarn / art/ craft can help.
