Your Thoughts Wanted

Thanks to @lionbrandyarn for sharing my article on Craft Project Ideas for Showing / Sharing Love. I’d love to get more comments on this to see where people’s thoughts are about it since this is also related to what I’m doing in my Hook to Heal Project so if you have a moment I’d love it if you could pop over there and add your thoughts!

Crochet Quote

“We craft to inject the personal into the day-to-day and to infuse our lives meaning. The yarn we choose speaks to us because we can instantly visualize it as a sweater or a scarf or an afghan, or simply because we like the color. Color also speaks to us on a more mystical level – often symbolizing deeper meanings: red for love and passion; white for purity; yellow for cheerfulness, to name a few.” – @lionbrandyarn post on Zodiac Knit and Crochet Scarf Patterns
