I have just read the very sad news that Wink took her own life last Friday. Wink has been a huge inspiration to me. It was after reading about her in Kathryn Vercillo’s Book “Crochet Saved My Life” that I sought diagnosis for Asperger Syndrome. She always seemed so happy and jolly online, always into new crochet projects, and this inspired me to get more involved with crochet-alongs.
Wink (Marinke Slump) will be very sadly missed by everyone, but I feel a huge gap in my life already, and not just as a fellow Aspie crochet nut.
Goodbye Wink. I guess in the end crochet just wasn’t enough for you.
