My campaign with #CAREKnowsHow is about to come to an end and you could really help me out by visiting the story sharing page. You’ll find inspiring information there about CARE programs including how pink bed sheets got more women to visit health clinics, fog was turned into drinking water and replacing chickens with ducks improved life in flood zones.

Something Special

Holiday crochet ideas for every occasion in April. Besides Easter and Passover, April includes National Garden Week, National Poetry Month, Juggler’s Day and so much more! You can also check out the regional yarn events over at Stitch and Unwind.

It’s also National Stress Awareness Month. @CycYarnCouncil is hosting #StitchAwayStress Month with all kinds of good things in April! Check out the interview that @craftsanity did with executive director Mary Colucci about the health benefits of crochet and other crafts.

Quote

“When I was stuck in a chair for the fall and winter because moving meant breathing harder and that meant I was going to potentially pass out, a full knitting basket became my chairside companion.” – From How Knitting Saved My Life, a post that resonated with my because of the many similar stories I’ve heard in response to my book Crochet Saved My Life
