Learning to do something new is always exciting. Especially, when you get the choice to choose your own topic. After pondering on what project to work on, I have finally come to a conclusion.
My independent-learning project will be to learn how to crochet. Growing up, I saw many woman crocheting. I have always admired their beautiful art work. But most of all, their dedication, skills, creativity and patience. This project will definitely be a challenge. It will take lots of practice and patience. It is a big difference when you see someone else do it, than when you do it yourself. So I am definitely up for a challenge. However, keeping in mind this is a project I would love to accomplish, I will give it my best.
As a college student, person, wife and mother, it is very important for me to determine what I want to do. I want to be a positive role model for my son. By learning how to crochet, I can share the knowledge with my son and other people of the beautiful art of crochet.
Creativity is definitely a key point in crocheting. Playing around with patters, techniques, fabrics,colors, shapes, etc. can help with relaxing specially on a stressful day. After all, crochet can help with educational development while having fun. Crochet can also help with stress, relaxation, motivation, help with focusing, and can even help through mentally tough times in some cases.
Crocheting will become a new hobby which I will enjoy while making beautiful items to keep, wear or give away. It will definitely be a very positive experience in my life. I will feel very productive while learning “through play!”
