Let's Celebrate NatCroMo with
Free Bunny Ear Hair Clips!
It's NatCroMo (National Crochet Month) and even though we celebrate crochet year round it's exciting to take a month dedicated to the craft.
This industry is full of amazing designers, indie yarn dyers, and bloggers committed to bringing the very best to the crochet world and I couldn't be more excited to part of the journey.
Our craft has been around for a very long time, but in recent years it's been given some speed with social media and the web and blossomed into a wonderful community.
At the end of the day we all enjoy grabbing a hook and a ball of yarn together despite any differences we may have. It binds crafters together from all over the world.
For me it gave me the freedom to explore my artist side as well as make awesome handmade stuff for my children, family, and friends.
A ball of yarn and a hook saved my sanity.
We all picked up yarn and hook for a variety of reasons. I'm also guessing many of us found some added unexpected bonuses to the craft such as stress or anxiety relief.
It's not about how fast you can crochet or how complicated of project one can complete, it's about the journey.
My goal is to keep you inspired to pick up the yarn and create fun stuff and also enjoy the craft and community. 🙂
