Post image for Erik Hansen Crochets for ADHD … And Profits

Erik Hansen is the head of a business called FireHouse. Ele também é um cara jovem que crochets, em parte, porque ajuda-lo a lidar com sua ADHD.

Crochet for ADHD

I’ve done extensive research into crocheting for health benefits. I’ll be honest I haven’t found a lot of information about crocheting for ADHD. Na verdade, in researching my book on this topic, I really wanted to include a chapter on crochet for the autism spectrum (ADHD is at one end of that spectrum) but I couldn’t find enough information or people doing it to create a full chapter. So I’m really excited to see this news about Erik Hansen because it confirms what I thought, which is that crochet can be a way to focus the mind when you have a condition like ADD/ ADHD.

Erik Hansen Crochets

Janice Kurbjun of Summit Daily recently wrote a perfil of this young guy through which I learned the following:

  • Erik Hansen started a business with a trademark product of crochet beanies, popular with skiers which makes sense since he’s based in Colorado.
  • He’s been crocheting for about ten years. He learned from a friend.
  • Hansen also knits.
  • He believes that crochet helps him to disconnect mind from body. His hyperactive mind can focus and tune into rapid crochet work to help him cope productively with ADHD.
  • Hansen has crocheted somewhere around 1000 chapéus, making more than 300 in the past year alone.
  • He attended University of Colorado Leeds School of Business and got a degree in entrepreneurship and management.

FireHouse

Erik Hansen grew up in an old firehouse, hence the name of the company. FireHouse emprega dois outros crochetadeiras. Além disso, A avó de Hansen produz uma linha de “qualidade avó” chapéus feitos com o ano mais fino e stitchwork mais detalhada. FireHouse também tem três outros rapazes envolvidos no fim do negócio: parceiro Ian Winters, comercialização cara Tim Bremer e designer criativo Steve Cummings.

Hansen descreve a linha no LinkedIn:

“Através de padrões de qualidade consistente e benchmarks progressivas contínuas, apresentável, criador, e produtos exclusivos, FireHouse, LLC esforça-se para redefinir o que as pessoas vêem como um meio de expressar-se através de sua escolha de habiliment.”

E em Facebook:

Motivados pelo estilo de vida único e incrível que envolve todos os entusiastas ao ar livre, Firehouse produtos são peças artesanais de "obras de arte wearable".

FireHouse está expandindo sua linha de produtos este ano; in the fall the company will begin producing outwear.

Custom Knit and Crochet Hats

The hats that you can get from FireHouse are custom crocheted hats. You pick a style of hat, select your main color and accent colors and then place your order.

Por exemplo, here’s the Pommed Ear Flap Style:

@winkieflash Não se preocupe. Your contribution is definitely going to be included in the book. I just have to rework my plan for that chapter. I was hoping to hear from some more people in various parts of the spectrum. Mas sim, I value your terrific contribution for sure!!
