I have been deeply impacted this morning by the news that Marinke (Wink) of A Creative Being succumbed to suicide. (See full post here.) And I feel like I need to do something. After re-reading her story in Crochet Saved My Life, mulling it over during meditative crochet and mindful walking, I’ve come up with the project. It’s called #MandalasForMarinke.
I am sitting here stunned, shocked, saddened, scared … Feeling a world’s worth of emotions that don’t have a proper place in my brain. Marinke, known to many as Wink of A Creative Being, has succumbed to the depths of depression and taken her own life.
I love looking at rainbow-colored crochet. Back in April I rounded up 60 crochet patterns and photos inspired by the rainbow. But people are releasing new rainbow hued crochet patterns all of the time so I already have 13 new ones for you here today. Enjoy!

A little while back, one of this blog’s readers, Flo, was in the midst of working on the Sophie’s Universe crochet project and shared some of her mid-project thoughts with us in a post that I did over on About.com Crochet. She’s since completed the popular crochet project and is back with an update and some tips.
