Crochet for Calm

Had I known how wonderfully calming and therapeutic crochet was, I would have begun much sooner. It has been only a matter of weeks since I first picked up a crochet hook and began with the basics, but already I am hooked.

I have been working on perfecting my doubles and trebles, and I am ready to start practicing these stitches on some very simple pot holders. The pot holders are the first crochet projects in the vintage Golden Hands magazines I have been reading.

Crochet is such a portable craft, requiring little materials or set-up. I love that at any time I can pick up my hook and yarn and simply crochet. It is certainly an ideal craft for a busy mother.
