"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

What Crocheting and Knitting mean to me...

Back in January, Lion Brand Yarn posted a question on their blog asking How Knitting and Crocheting Make Us Better. They complied some of the answers into a short video...

My crafting was one thing that help me keep my sanity when I was dealing with infertility. Crafting has also let me express my artistic nature in a way that can be shared with others. Now, slowly, I am teaching my sons to crochet and I'm passing that ability to create joy and beauty on to another generation.

Am learning to crochet! I am trying to teach myself. I find it helps to keep my mind and hands occupied during my IF and wait for IVF. Any tips or patterns will be greatly recieved!

Kristin you always impress me with your craftiness. I used to be crafty and then I fell off the wagon once I had William.
