Crocheting has been very therapeutic for me; as I deal with health challenges I am facing. Instead of focusing on the physical challenges that I cannot change or control, I focus on finishing my latest crocheting project. The project I am currently crocheting is a blue and gray scarf for a custom order. I like receiving custom orders because I have to finish the project by an agreed upon deadline. I want to finish this scarf by tomorrow. I keep my projects very simple. Hats ( plain berets and beanies with or without flowers ) Right now I am taking custom orders and making gifts for friends and family. I’m also crocheting matching scarves. Hopefully, I will be able to sell some of items I have listed on my Etsy site. I try to keep my life centered around my crocheting or sometimes knitting projects because I feel a sense of accomplishment and peace when I sell an item or I see someone wearing something I made. Staying optimistic and keeping my head above water is easier one crochet project at a time.
