Fingers weave story
Crocheting cozy phrases
I'm no poet but I tried my hand at it this morning. I was looking for words to describe how holy (not just holey) I find yarn work. It calms my spirit. The repetition of stitch is a contrasting experience to my other creative work where every brushstroke involves intense thought and decisionmaking. As I crochet, I think of the person to whom my work will go, weaving in hope that it wrap them in comfort and a sense of safety from the elements, both literal and figurative.
I posted this piece on Facebook early this morning and it was snatched up by a friend of mine within the hour. That's a validating way to start the week! If you are interested in commissioning a piece like this, feel free to message me at firstname.lastname@example.org The price is $30 plus and additional $5 shipping in the US. This one was made using a 100% soft acrylic textured yarn and measures 5" x 70". It's a very cozy scarf - perfect for a cold day!
