Elevate simple crochet work into art by framing it for display in your home. This is an exercise in honoring the importance of your own creative self-expression – even if “all” you are making is granny squares!
Sensual Crochet promotes the idea that we should spoil ourselves with luxury yarns and clothes that make us feel sexy. This is crochet as self-care, which is something I’m passionate about (as you know if you’ve read Hook to Heal!)
In this exercise, you will crochet a basket where you can store and display items that are close to your heart. Why? When you collect several items that you love and put them into one display, you essentially create a shrine to your own happiness. This is a place where you can continually re-fuel your own creative spirit. A crochet basket is a great place to store these items.
Hi! Yesterday was my birthday, which I mentioned in the post about my parents yesterday. I also shared some old photos and memories on Instagram yesterday as part of my celebration. But today the celebration is extended to you. As my birthday gift to you, I’m offering steep discounts on my books throughout the rest of April.
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.
Thanks to support from Patreon funders, I’ve got an excerpt from Hook to Heal for you today, sharing one of the exercises in the book that’s about learning to let go.
