Anyway, as it so happened, a retired couple who lived down the street from me talked to me about some volunteer work that they were involved in at a local charity. She crocheted hats and he crocheted scarves for the homeless shelter.
Now, four years later, that couple has moved from the city, and I have learned how to crochet and how to knit. I find that I equally enjoy both activities, however, I have found that crocheting is more forgiving if you make a mistake.
About 3 years ago, I began making scarves and hats for local charities as well as overseas organizations. One positive aspect of this is that I never have to work to meet deadlines. I make the scarves & hats whenever I have the time, and I never feel pressured. It also helps me relax and wind down. It's also my mental therapy.
See what the Craft Yarn Council (CYC) says about it as being therapeutic
It's a hobby that I enjoy tremendously, and the best part of it is that I know that the scarves and hats which I donate will keep persons warm during the cold winter months.
