Hi, I'm May!
Welcome to my blog!
I'm one of those people who's simply in love with crochet!
You know why I think crochet is awesome? Because it's an experience and it connects... on so many levels!
When you crochet, you connect yarn to create the most beautiful things, clothing items, toys, home decor, you name it... and what do you do with these items? You gift them, and so you connect with your loved ones.
Your children watch you crochet and get inspired.
They connect with you wanting you to teach them how to crochet. And what a beautiful bonding experience that is!
You connect with your inner self when you're so focused on your crochet project. Stitch after stitch you meditate and free your mind from all the troubles you have.
If you're new to crochet and all this sounds good to you, let me be your guide, answer your questions and give you some inspiration 🙂
