New post on String for Brains:
Hello and welcome to String for Brains, a crochet journal of sorts. I have started reading Kathryn Vercillo‘s book, Hook to Heal and have decided to blog about my progress with the book and my journey through self-healing and finding my inner artist. I know she’s in there somewhere, but as I have “string for brains”, this may take some time!
I thought it might be fun to share a little background before I start working on the exercises in Kathryn’s book, so I will start with my crochet journey. I used to do a lot of cross stitch – I mean a lot of cross stitch. I was quite accomplished at the craft and took pride in my work. However, in 2010 we had to move house and I needed to do something a little more portable than cross stitch to cope with the stress. Yes, I know small cross stitch projects are indeed portable, but I was only working on large projects at the time and found small projects (the portable-sized small projects) irritating and pointless. I mean, I found my inner peace while crocheting large projects and it could take me a while to find it. With a much smaller project, I would probably finish it before I felt the relaxing calm that usually came with hours upon hours of work.
