All materials provided, including 1 skein of yarn, 1 crochet hook and 1 yarn needle . We will have a variety of yarn colors to choose from!
Crocheting is good for mental health because it requires mindfulness. As you crochet, you need to pay attention to each stitch, the movement of your hook or needle, your breath, your stitch count. “When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future”
