It has been such a fun week or so getting re-inspired by all things crochet in 2016. We’ve reviewed crochet art, books, designers, fashion, health, news, patterns, tips and tutorials. Now let’s look back at the creativity exercises I published this year, mostly as part of my Hook to Heal book.
An exercise on crocheting a healing dream catcher. I followed this up with a roundup of crochet dreamcatcher patterns and inspiration. (Pictured: How to Crochet a Dreamcatcher, free pattern by Little Things Blogged)
Mindfulness Exercise: Micromoments of Imaginary Crochet – this is one that anyone who knows how to crochet can do at any place and time to gain some inner peace and get grounded
Spring Cleaning: Organize!!
I also wrote a series of posts for the Craftsy spring cleaning project, helping crafters to organize and declutter their crafty spaces. I write a lot about this in Hook to Heal and consider it an important part of the process of crocheting for wellness so I was happy to be able to do some more writing on this for Craftsy!
