Kathryn Vercillo is the amazing blogger at Crochet Concupiscence, as well as the author of Crochet Saved My Life, a book about the mental and physical benefits you can get from crocheting. Well as you may have heard, she’s got a new project going that promises to be even more inspiring than the last: Hook to Heal!
Since it’s the last Friday of the 2012, and we’ve all been busy celebrating the season, I thought I’d take a moment for the Moogly Year in Review! We’ve come a long way in the past year, and it’s been an amazing journey. And it wouldn’t have been possible without all of you!
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and get everything you desire! I’ll be taking a few days off to spend with family, and will return on Friday with a special Moogly Year in Review! In the meantime, you can catch me over on the Moogly Facebook page! Happy Holidays!
The joy of having 3 kids who have supreme faith in your ability to knit and crochet anything is that you always have something you need to make “right now!” Occasionally, it’s something like “can you make me a sweater today?” which…. um… no.

There are so many ways crocheters share their talents, and one of the most inspirational ways is through giving crocheted items to charity. There are charity organizations centered specifically around crochet items, and there are charity events that accept crochet items for their fundraising efforts.

Summer is still going full blast, but here the new school year starts in just a few weeks! It’s time to start gathering supplies, evaluating wardrobes, getting haircuts, and planning any last summer adventures. Sad or glad (or a little bit of both), you can send them off to school right – with a little crocheted love from home!
