Ahhhh. Does that feel better now? It’s the end of a busy day. Maybe you’ve had a hard, long day at work, or you’ve been rushed off your feet looking after the kids, the home, the chores, the hubby – and now it’s time for you.
You pick up your hook and instantly feel better. The gentle rhythm of hook and yarn calms you. The feel of the fiber running through your fingers, and the calming colors you’re using this evening help to release the tension in your shoulders. The simple, repetitive movements of a simple pattern help to clear and calm your mind. The stresses of the day melt away as you create and craft your latest idea.
That’s the very idea behind the latest crochet book release from Interweave – Crochet to Calm: Stitch and De-Stress with 18 Colorful Crochet Patterns.
From the book jacket:
