Your thoughts – why you love to crochet

Last week, we asked you to tell us one of the many reasons you love to crochet. Since today is the last day of National Crochet Month, we want to share a few answers from our fellow crafters.

crochet heartsJoan likes how each project, “becomes an original exclusive, ” and we agree that the fun of making a unique, handmade item is truly amazing.

Virginia finds it, “a wonderful way to relax, as the more my hands and arms move, the more problems I work out in my mind.” This is so true, and we love that research is now proving what we crafters have known all along.

Paula says, “I feel a great sense of accomplishment after I figure out a stitch or finish a project, and I’m so proud when I give handmade gifts to my family & friends.” Crocheters are always so generous with their finished projects, and it’s wonderful to think about your family and friends loving and using something you made by hand.

Kim says, “I get to be part of a tradition and culture that has stood the test of time, and I get to be part of a community of like minded individuals who do the same.” The bond we feel with crocheters throughout history and today really brings us together and keeps us connected to our past.

We received many inspiring and thoughtful responses, so we invite you to take a moment to read all of them. If you wrote a comment telling us why you love to crochet, check to see if you were randomly chosen as one of our prize winners!

National Crochet Month was truly a blast for us, and we hope you had as much fun as we did. Our passion for crochet is not limited to one month of the year, but it’s fun to take a few weeks to really celebrate this creative and beautiful craft.
