This is a guest post by Linda Kennedy who shared her crochet health story here on the blog. Today she shares a piece that she has written about an exercise in crocheting with your eyes closed.
This is an exercise that you can do anytime, anywhere, in your own mind, even without yarn and a crochet hook. It is designed to bring you back to a place of peace, regardless of what is going on around you, so that you can respond to all situations with inner peace and outer calm.
Today’s exercise is a Mindfulness Crochet exercise in crafting a never-ending circle.
Crochet a dream catcher for yourself. The purpose is to create a symbolic tool to help you realize your dreams.
This creativity exercise is an excerpt from my book Hook to Heal, which offers 100 exercises to inspire the use of crochet to heal and improve all areas of life. This exercise comes from the “adventure” chapter.
The temperature scarf and its alternative the weather scarf are terrific crochet projects with many mental health benefits. The “crochet sky scarf” takes this one step further.
