Crocheting and Chronic Fatique
Created By:

I started crocheting August of 1995. I had learned to knit and thought I could teach myself to crochet. My grandmother years eariler had taught me how to crochet a chain. So I started. It turned out to be a wonderful therapy. Little did I know that during this time I would become ill and my life changed greatly! Crocheting was something I could look forward too. It was an escape from illness. Somedays I was too ill to crochet, but I started out with very easy small projects. One of my favorites was potholders. I still make potholders today. My grandmother, who I think of as a Master Crocheter, made a beautiful potholder that I could not find a pattern for. Since she passed in 1992 I could not ask her for the pattern. My daughter saw a woman crocheting, at a summer camp, a potholder very similar to grandma's. She came home and fiqured out grandma's pattern. I can't tell you how happy I was to be able to make this pattern that brought me close to my grandmother and daughter. Crocheting helped comfort me during onset of a chronic illness; it keeps me connected to my past and to the furture. Crocheting (and knitting) is a comfort to me. I would be happy to share the pattern for Grandma's Potholder if you are interested.
