I am happy to bring you an interview today with Erna who blogs at Eyes of a Child, a beautiful blog inspired by the creativity and curiosity of how children see the world. She is a crafter who loves to crochet and has seen the benefits of the craft. She is also a photographer who shares beautiful images of her work. In this interview, we learn about her history with the craft and get a few photo tips for crafters.
Today we have an interview with Casey who shares her story about the benefits of crochet.
Today Moonfalle shares her story of crochet and how it helped her through difficult times.
I’ve been enjoying looking back at 2016 in crochet as a reminder of just how much amazing inspiration there is in this craft throughout the world and across different disciplines. We have looked at crochet art, books and fashion. Today let’s look back at my favorite topic: CROCHET HEALTH.
I think it’s always good to think about the reasons we love crochet and the things that we love about it.
Mandy O’Sullivan of RedAgape and Craft as Therapy has written a beautiful introduction to the book Crochet to Calm, writing in part that crochet is, “an underutilized form of therapy that can produce real stress reduction and management”. I mulled over this line for a few moments, asking myself if it is truly underutilized … and I came to the conclusion that the answer is both yes and no. And furthermore, that this book is an important one.
PhyllisAnn learned to crochet in her early teens but really turned to the craft as an adult during a time of need.
