Crochet Quote

“In the early afternoon, when the expected rain has cleared, I will take advantage of the spring-like temperatures and tentative sunshine to work in my outdoor office, using my Wonder Washer to felt the potholders, and in finishing that one project, I hope to create a gentle, but persistent cascade of order that spreads throughout my entire crochet empire.” – Crochetbug

Crochet News

@solartvnews interviews Trey Ajusto, Philippines crocheter, about the craft. It starts off a little offensive – calling crochet tedious and hard – but I liked the interview itself and seeing the crochet work. I especially liked that it mentioned how crochet is a good stress reliever. I was also happy to see I was happy to see that this (unrelated) article mentioned briefly a crochet and knitting class for cancer survivors as one of many ways to heal.
