The portability of crochet makes it so easy to craft “on the run!” I am sitting in a doctor’s waiting room while my dad has a check- up after his keyhole back surgery several weeks ago. My “go-to” waiting activity is usually crochet as it is so compact and easy to just pop into your bag.

My mum taught me to crochet when I was 13 years old and my enthusiasm for it has never waned! I am making flowers from a 1970s pattern using crochet cotton that you can pick up at most bargain stores. Crochet therapeutic and relaxing and will get me in the right frame of mind to drive home in peak hour traffic!!
