Crochet Therapy

I can't imagine my life without crochet.  One hour alone, quiet, crochet hook in hand, a quality yarn, and coffee by my side, it sounds like paradise to me!

I crochet at home, on trips, and on public transit.  I've even taken my crochet to work with me, almost every day, my co-workers would find me on my lunch break, smiling and crocheting to my heart's content.  Of course I got sarcasm, ridicule, and jokes from my co-workers, but all in good nature.

When asked why I crochet, my answer is simple.

"I crochet because it's an escape from the world.  I forget about all things bad, I forget about any other responsibilities, and I set my mind free.  This is where I find inspiration and where my best ideas come to life.  I think, I learn, and I create.  No matter how long that I'm in my happy place, 30 minutes, one hour, all day; I come back to the world in a happier mood."

Relax.  Crochet.  Create.
