Ginny McGaw from Michigan writes this message to Wink’s family: “I did not know her, but her story has touched me. I made this mandala in her honor. May she be at peace.”
You may or may not know that I write a regular column for Interweave Crochet magazine. It’s called Everyday Crochet and it shares articles that I write based on interviews with people who share their experiences of the craft. In addition to the regular seasonal issues, Interweave has special issues, including Crochetscene, which has just come out for 2015. In this issue I’ve shared my article about Helen Wyatt.
This contribution comes from Instagram’s crochetlovingcelticghirl who describes herself there as an: “Ageing teacher from the city, living in mid of nowhere, living the crafting way of life. I love my family, Celtic FC, crochet, my Bichon and a good cup of tea!”
Louisa, aka The Craft Pixie, describes herself as: “Thirtysomething, upcycled graphic designer, guerrilla crafter and urban allotmenteer, managing my Type 1 diabetes, depression and infertility through crochet and art.”
Tamara used the Winter Mandala crochet pattern, which was the first mandala pattern of Wink’s that she ever saw.
This anonymous maker shares herself through writing:
“One day at a time is what I say,
One day, one pattern
One hour, one minute, one second,
One pattern, one round, one stitch
This is Jamie’s first-ever crocheted mandala. She shared:
“It is a 12-round Wink mandala in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, both solid and variegated, made in hopes that it brings comfort to Wink’s community, helps spread the word about mental health issues, and serves as a reminder of love, art, light and life. I am grateful for Wink’s art and generous spirit and for this memorial to her.”
