Crochet Quote

“I have turned to the fiber arts as quick therapy. The repetitive motions are very meditative but yet need enough attention it can break my thought process as it relates to thinking about death and dying. A few times, on really bad days, I have poured the anxiety into whatever I was making to get rid of it – and most of the time it worked.” [email protected] in a great post about living with thanatophobia

Special Thanks


  • To Amanda Lightfoot for this lovely comment: “Hi Kathryn! I love your blog! I check it daily to see your posts. I love crochet as well. Learned how as a young girl. I wanted to let you know that I crochet with a chronic illness. I am in stage 4 renal failure. I have dialysis treatment 3 days a week and am currently waiting for a transplant. I often crochet to help pass the 4 hours of each treatment. I have made numerous items for friends and family during treatments. Please continue to inspire others as you have and continue to inspire me.”
  • As well as Crystal Wall who commented, “Thanks for all the gorgeous pictures. I love all of them. You showcased a few projects that I saved. I love your blog, follow you on BlogLovin. Read every post. Thanks for great crochet!”

San Francisco based and crochet-obsessed writer, dreamer and creative spirit!

    Just started to crochet and need pointers can you please help me

      You can find some basic crochet tutorials here: … There are also tons of great beginner crochet videos online – I’d recommend starting with Moogly or CrochetGeek. Alternatively, you can go to your local yarn store and see if they have crochet 101 classes. Welcome to the craft!

  3. Another jam packed interesting post!
    Thank you for including my heart pattern!
