Crochet and Health

I’m hosting a giveaway of my new book, Crochet Saved My Life. To enter you need to share your thoughts on craft as a healing tool on your blog (or Facebook if you don’t have a blog). There have been some amazing entries:

  • Dani Does Doilies tells us how crochet helps her deal with family dementia.
  • Love, Hope, Trust says crochet is good for her and for those around her.
  • Amazon with a Hook shares how crochet helps with her multiple health conditions.
  • Lizzie Kate shared, “Being on the autistic spectrum, there is a necessity to have repetitive action to calm down, zone out, get grounded, chillax. Crochet offers that repetition in a very socially acceptable way.”

    That explains the uptick in visits to my blogs, thanks KV! I don’t know where you keep coming up with these fun ( and crazy!) links but keep it up, I am enjoying it. I can practice my spanish and crochet at las teje y maneja and the Kate Cardigan coffee and pretzel made me nostaligic for NYC ( the “ossedax” comment made me gag) Love it all!
