Today is a day of crochet. My only day off this week and all I plan on doing is making hats, scarves, and fingerless gloves. I had forgotten how much I enjoy making things for people. I battle with an anxiety disorder and for me crochet calms my nerves. It helps me focus and put that excess energy and worry into something productive. It also requires patience. Patience is learned. It doesn’t come without trial and error. I’ve gotten almost all the way through a project and had to tear it all apart because of a mistake that just got bigger and bigger ruining the whole project. Life is like that sometimes. Little mistakes become bigger and bigger issues. Rather than ignoring them and pretending they’ll go away I have to face them and deal with what is wrong. The finished project always comes out better and stronger.
