We all crochet for different reasons. For me, it has been a passion of mine since I was a child. In college I sold crocheted earrings. And when I ended up retiring and going on disability due to Muscular Dystrophy, I had more time and opened up JadeRoseCrochet.com.
Now that I meditate, I realize how relaxing it is, and how the time flies when I am designing. Now a study has shown that those of us who crochet and knit have less memory loss!
