At least 3 people have told me that they would like to learn how to crochet. I love LOVE to crochet. So, I decided to make an attempt to teach it on my blog! LOL! We will see how this goes.
Lesson 1 - The Philosophy of Crocheting
Crocheting is meditation. It is a peaceful and repetitive process. While crocheting, you should feel your stress lift away. You should feel calm and peaceful. You should eventually come to a level where you can work on a project without counting stitches, and letting your mind fly and wander in lovely ways.
If you are struggling- stop.
If you are feeling the yarn pulling, or feeling tight - stop.
If you fear you are not doing it right - stop.
Take a breath. Just be with it. Make the needed adjustments. Review instructions. Try something different. Relax.
Crocheting is peaceful. You must allow yourself the space to receive this peace.
Are you ready?
