Crochet Quote

“Is crocheting fun? Yes, and relaxing, and addictive. But there’s something deeper about crocheting. It allows me to clear my mind, but also to think, and I believe helps me with my concentration. It’s helping me become more focused and less absent-minded. Now that I have a deeper appreciation of the craft, I say this to all women who have children: teach them to crochet.” – A post from new crocheter Rebeca Schiller (@SchillerRebeca)
