Crochet My mother taught me the basics of knit and crochet as a child. As I watched her crocheting I wanted to try too. Not only I enjoyed arty-crafty work, but I loved romantic look and feel of lace doily crochet, fairytalish style 🙂 Creative fulfillment, happiness, working on something you enjoy result in creating a better mood, offers an opportunity for self expression, replacing stress and anxiety with the satisfaction of creation. (my mother’s handmade lace doily) I have beautiful collection of wonderful crocheted doilies, tablecloths, sets, that my mother made for me, and I know they weren’t made to be stored in a drawer or a box forever, but I like to keep them safely stored as precious gifts. Relaxed, repetitive motions such as the ones used in crochet and knitting can help calm and induce a relaxed state like that associated with meditation and yoga.
