I interlocked the last loop late Monday night to complete a crocheted lap “pandemic” blanket.
Since fall 2019, I have turned to what some may call “old-fashioned” crafts. More so, now to calm my fears and anxieties; knowing situations that I cannot control or don’t even understand too well.
To be able to hold a thread, swirl it around my fingers with a simple metal hook and make something tangible and useful calms me. It is repetitive, rhythmic, meditative, and therapeutic.
There is a result at the end. This gives me hope.
Was it time consuming?
Did I work at night or odd hours?
Did my fingers hurt?
Did I get a back pain?
Did my eyes and neck hurt?
Did I sleep a little less?
Was it calming?
Am I happy with the end product?
Will I do it again?
Yes to all the above.
Praying for hope.
