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.
I learned to crochet when I was a child but didn’t really do much with it until I was in my late 20s. I was going through a battle with depression and there wasn’t a whole lot that I had energy for but I remembered that I liked to crochet when I was young so I decided to learn again. I began with making basic scarves and blankets but then began to create a variety of art in crochet. I love that this is a form of self-expression that I can embrace even though I’m not skilled at arts like drawing, painting or sculpting!
One of the simplest ways to save money on energy bills this winter is to prevent drafts from seeping in and out underneath all of the doors in your home. You can crochet your own creative door draft stopper. However, if you’re pressed for time, there’s an even faster fix – just use a crochet blanket as a door draft stopper!
It has just come to my attention that at least one person is disappointed with the delay in Hook to Heal’s publication so I wanted to publish another update for you in case it’s something that you’ve been wondering about.
The period for submissions is now complete. I’m thrilled to be a part of it with a submission of my own.
I found 44 crochet projects on the site, 17 of which got their full funding.
Yarn Bombing Los Angeles, the group that brought us the collaborative granny square art project at CAFAM, has a new project in the works that I’m planning to join in on and wanted to invite you to to do the same.
