When adult coloring books started to become a thing, my husband laughed at how simple it was. I think people like it because its relaxing and a great way to decompress. It relieves stress and allows for mistakes! You can’t mess up a coloring book! Also, with all the screen time we all have throughout the day, its nice to unplug and focus on one individual thing.
Well, I think crochet is the next big thing for de-stressing. After a girls weekend away where a group of friends all learned (or got a refresher course) in crochet, it has taken over my social media. Everyone is working on something, asking questions about reading patterns, and buying ALL the yarn. Its like a guilty pleasure – headed to Michaels for one skein, walked out with 6!
So when my friend Christie started sharing her crochet projects I begged her for pictures to share with you. She made this adorable Crochet Mermaid Tail for her daughter – its like a sleeping bag, afghan and childhood mermaid dreams all rolled into one!
