Today’s crochet quote comes from the first paragraph of a really great recent blog post by Doris Chan. It’s a really great post about what you should and shouldn’t (or can and can’t) do while crocheting. Check out the whole post!

“With experience, the physical act of making crochet fabric becomes automatic. At that point, the smooth, repetitive and intellectually non-challenging motions free up our higher brain functions to take in and process information and all manner of other stimuli. In other words, while our hands are very busy with crochet, our minds may be engaged with other things. I might be tempted to say crochet makes you smarter. Certainly the possibility of layering pleasure upon pleasure makes the craft even more fun.”

Curious – how many of you out there have crocheted a Doris Chan design? I’ve got one bookmarked for myself but haven’t done it yet.

  1. Just last night finished my second Zen Jacket. And next Saturday if I make it to my first ever (for me) local Crochet guild group, they are planning on working on a Doris project together. I have several others in my “to be done some day” list.

    Which one have you bookmarked? I love the top down seamless construction, etc.

      @Keri – She has a skirt that has these flared panels. Can’t think of the name right now but it’s beautiful. That’s the one I really want to make! I definitely love anything with seamless construction, so that would be something I’d enjoy too!
