I recently rounded up 80+ crochet health articles that I’ve written in the past few years. But here are some more recent crochet health articles and news about how crochet heals.
You don’t have to be able to see to crochet. You can feel your way through the work. In fact, many people who crochet are blind – either because they were born that way or because they experience macular degeneration over time. Many older people with limited eyesight can no longer drive or do other daily things but they can still crochet. Here are some of those inspiring crochet stories about blind crocheters
The new issue of Happily Hooked Magazine, issue #14, is now out and includes my interview with Sheila Z about how crochet has helped her through grief. Read the whole interview by getting Happily Hooked online.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all of you moms out there. In honor of the holiday I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some of the mother/ daughter crafting teams that I know of in the crochet community. Enjoy!
Inspired by reading Love in Every Stitch, I decided to go through my archives and review all of the articles I’ve written over the years about how crochet has helped people. Of course, I love the personal stories the most but I like anytime I can share about the mental and physical health benefits of crochet. Then I got to wondering – why haven’t I collected all of these articles in one place? Well, I ask that no longer – here is the archive of crochet health stories to date.
I shared this baby bereavement hat photo by Instagram’s amimami10 as one of the top ten photos of the week in yesterday’s crochet photo roundup. I’ve been so touched by the comments people have left on my Instagram share.
If you enjoy learning about crochet straight from the mouths of designers and makers then these interviews should interest you. Some are links to podcast interviews (by folks like Marly Bird) and others are written interviews (like those from my favorite interviewer, Underground Crafter).
