    I was a bit upset to see this is only on Instagram….since that is one “social media” platform I don’t do.
    I’m just a lowly crocheter – not a designer, so I guess it doesn’t matter. As it is, if I sign up for any more social media outlets, I will have NO time left to actually crochet….which I do – not just because I enjoy it (which I do!), but because it is therapy for me. I am partially handicapped and unable to do all the physical activities I’d like to do because my body will not allow me (including my own housework!).
    But – those are the breaks, right?
    Good luck to all. I have Pinned the book image herein. But Instagram, I don’t do.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

    Hi I don’t have Instagram either but would love for you to put my name into the draw. I am a volunteer cancer counsellor and I am disabled with less mobility than I want and more pain than anyone needs. I use my crochet, sewing & knitting as my own therapy, as there is no place within the local authority running therapeutic groups for others like myself. I have great crafty friends too.

    I don’t do Instagram. I have found that with only a finite time available each day for crafting that it’s best to limit the number of social media platforms that I use. Otherwise all I’d do is to look at what others have made and do nothing myself. However I am very interested in your book “Crochet to Calm” and would be grateful if you could add my name to the draw.

    • redagapeblog

      I completely understand why you limit your Social media platforms…. You can lose hours! I opt not the use FB much anymore in favour of IG. Thanks for commenting here. I’ve added your name to the draw. Xx

    I do have Instagram and follow you and that is actually how I found your lovely blog! However, I tried tagging someone one time and she said I sent her a private message. Who knew. I need to have my 13 year old niece show me a few more things! So please enter me in the drawing through the blog format, and I’ll try to learn a bit more on Instagram. I love it. Thank you.

    I had it in my head to use the blue-green yarn ball you had a picture of. I looked at it and thought to myself, “You know, I can sit just as quietly with my yarn before I unravel from this so-called’Life’ and everything it brings”. So hopefully, I can be calmed with your book, soothing music, and of course, yarn. Then, I realized I didn’t know how to repost . I’m not a quitter! I’ll find a way!! Thanks and take care. 🙂
