Making Space for Crochet

Special Places

I have a cherished spot in my home that’s dedicated to my crocheting.

It’s where I spend a lot of my creative time.

At any given moment, you’ll find me working on at least two crochet projects.

One of them is usually a substantial undertaking, like a cozy blanket or an elegant shawl.

The other is a smaller piece, often composed of charming granny squares.

Large and Small Projects

The larger project tends to stay put at home.

It becomes a part of the decor, blending into the cozy atmosphere.

On the other hand, the smaller crochet project is portable, which is a blessing.

I can take it with me wherever I go, and it’s become my trusty companion during moments of waiting.


Waiting Rooms

Whether it’s in a doctor’s waiting room, a dentist’s office, or sitting in the car while waiting for the kids to finish school, my crochet work is a constant presence.

I’ve even brought my small crochet piece to coffee mornings and craft group meetings.

It’s amazing how a few stitches can make those moments more serene and enjoyable.


Stash in Drawers

There was one house we lived in where I had a special drawer in the kitchen exclusively for my yarn and squares. It was a convenient setup.

While waiting for the spaghetti to boil or dinner to cook, I’d pull out my crochet project and make some progress.

It’s incredible how those few moments of crafting can transform mundane kitchen time into a delightful creative escape.


Kitchen Crochet

I must admit that my passion for crochet doesn’t stop even during everyday chores.

You might find me with a ball of yarn peeking out from my apron pocket while I prepare dinner.

It’s almost as if my crochet is a constant companion, adding a touch of artistry to the everyday tasks.

Even when I’m on the phone, I’ve been known to keep my hands busy with my beloved crochet work. It’s not just a hobby; it’s a way of life.


It’s moments like these, when I’m multitasking and weaving my art into the fabric of my daily routine, that I realize the true beauty of crochet.

It’s not just about creating beautiful pieces; it’s about infusing creativity into every corner of my life.

Crocheting is my meditative art, my sanctuary of colors, and my constant companion. I

t brings a sense of calm and joy that’s hard to describe.


So, as I reflect on my crocheting journey, I can’t help but smile.

It’s not just about the finished projects; it’s about the process, the moments of waiting, and the everyday life where my love for colors and art shines through.

Crochet is a part of me, and my special place at home is a testament to the love and dedication I have for this wonderful craft.
