I have a fabulous review & giveaway for you today lovelies! I recently was able to check out Crochet To Calm (ISBN: 978-1-63250-495-1, Interweave F+W).

I have to say I absolutely love this book and the concept behind it.  One of the main reasons I crochet and craft is to calm my mind....so this book really resonates with me for sure!  Inside are 18 fun and easy projects to de-stress and de-clutter your life...how awesome is that?  One thing I love about crochet is how easy it is to get started, just some pretty yarn, a hook and your hands...nothing fancy needed!

Let's connect!

Crochet to Calm is beautifully photographed in full color and complete with easy to navigate charts to make things extra helpful.  I love the variety of items to make like cowls, hats, mittens, and the super cute slippers shown below:

The back of the book is a great learning resource too with an illustrated techniques section, a guide to abbreviations, and a very handy metric conversion chart too.  So whether you're a crochet expert or starting out, you'll know just what to do.

Crochet Poufs are all the rage at the moment and this one in a a gentle gray looks so inviting and relaxing:

  8. When I was dealing with severe medication induced neurological problems I returned to crochet by making an afghan just for me. When my muscles where jerking and shaking crocheting kept me calm and sane. I haven't stopped crocheting since.
