You may have noticed I’ve been a bit obsessed with the crochet of late
There are a many reasons for the current obsession. Here are my top three.
Secondly, I’m working on building my YouTube presence and for me crochet is fast and intuitive. I’ve always been able to pick up a hook and make it up as I go along. It’s faster and easier for me to design in crochet. And while I’m trying to kick start the channel I need to churn out the original content,
And Thirdly.. I find crochet so good for my mental health and well being. I’m currently working with Mahlie of Living Arts Therapy I’m learning DBT skills to help me regulate my emotional wellbeing. I use my crochet to help me sit and be present in our weekly sessions. Having my hands busy, helps me focus and remain within my ‘window of tolerance’
I love working with colour and texture, crochet is the perfect vehicle for working with both.
It’s true… crochet does make us HAPPY HOOKERS 😁
