I mentioned awhile back that YarnBombing LA is doing another collaborative crochet art project called Put a Ring On It. The period for submissions is now complete. I’m thrilled to be a part of it with a submission of my own.

Here are the photos I contributed:

The photos will be on display in an exhibit in June 2014 at the Manhattan Beach Creative Art Center. Here’s what I said about them:

“Crochet literally saved my life. And then I wrote a book about that experience and it allowed me to connect to others who healed through the craft as well, saving my life in a new way. So what I love so much I’d marry it is crochet itself, the healing powers of the craft, the crochet community and the ongoing self-expression it allows me.”

And here are two related photos that I took but didn’t end up including in my submission:

I'm studying how crochet helps people. Please help by taking this survey. Learn more from the press release.

Unfortunately I can't make it, other side of the globe and all that, but I hope all goes swimmingly (mermaid reference).
