Garden Terrace Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

Prepare for photo-overload as I can't seem to get enough of my latest design! 

The Garden Terrace Infinity Scarf reminds me of a lovely terraced garden bursting with the colors of any season! Soft drape, lacey texture and versatility is what makes this design so fabulous, in my humble opinion!

Welcoming the Pansy Parade Blanket crochet pattern!

I'm just a wee bit silly happy about this one! The texture, the simplicity, the fun! I worked this one up in 22 colors of Stylecraft Special DK--a lovely premium acrylic that is very affordable--but it could seriously be made in any yarns and any colors! A super-duper stash buster, I say!

Studying How Crochet Heals and Helps People

This is a guest post by Kathryn Vercillo, author of Crochet Saved My Life and blogger at Crochet Concupiscence. She has created a new survey to explore the healing aspects of crochet.

Crochet Saved My Life by Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence




Have you seen all of the research lately pointing to the fact that crochet heals people? Studies show that crafts including knitting and crochet likely have a number of health benefits. The most commonly cited benefit is relief from depression, but crafting helps with many other mental health and physical health issues as well. We’ve just begun to explore the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how crochet helps people. A new survey has been launched to help dig deeper.


Some of the things that this new survey will help us to better understand include:


* What symptoms of mental and physical illness are people relieving with crochet?
* How much is crochet really helping people with these symptoms?
* What other benefits does crochet offer besides symptom relief?
* How do the benefits of crochet compare to the benefits of other similar crafts?


There are many important reasons to study this topic. First off, there are tens of thousands of people out there crocheting and it can help each and every one of them to know about the different ways that the craft can help them. There are also plenty of people struggling with health issues who might be encouraged to try to crochet to heal if they can see how it might help. And there are a variety of institutions and healing centers (hospitals, therapy groups, schools, etc.) that might be interested in launching crochet programs if the study can show that the craft helps to heal people.


The research from this study has the potential to create a great ripple effect. And you can help just by taking the survey and spreading the word about it to others. Please consider taking the survey now. Or you can learn more about it from this press release.

Thank you so much, Kathryn! It is an honor to have you guest post here! 

I took the survey and it was a wonderful opportunity to "tell my story" about how crochet has healed me. Go on folks...tell your story.
