The Secret to Being a Lifelong CrocheterBy A Guest Writer – 23 Comments
A Guest Post by Audrey Miller.
According to Rachel, this blog has readers from all over the world, ranging in all different ages. For someone like me who has been around since the dinosaurs (as my grand babies like to say), it is heartwarming to know that the art of crocheting will not be forgotten. Rachel is a young, true sweetheart, but I don’t think she can tell you the secret to being a lifelong crocheter until she’s lived to be as wrinkly as I am.
Speaking as a lifelong crocheter (and I really do mean a looooong life), the secret isn’t about what you crochet, or how often you crochet. It isn’t even about how well you crochet. Believe it or not, the secret to being a lifelong crocheter is right in front of you. It is like anything else in life.
In life you need a purpose. You need a reason to want to do it. You need that motivation, that fire in the belly feeling. The same is true for crocheting. To be a lifelong crocheter you need to have a purpose. A purpose can be anything from wanting to help people by crocheting them hats or just to have something fun to do while you watch TV.
Now you may wonder why it’s so important to be a life long crocheter. The answer is, it isn’t important unless you think it is. Those who find a purpose in crocheting will also find the reward in being true lifelong crocheters (I know I have). No matter who you are or where you are in the world, you can be a lifelong crocheter as long as you find your purpose.
Why do you crochet? What is your purpose?
