Sometimes you can get a little burned out from making baby blankets and scarves all the time. Those items make AMAZING gifts, but they don’t always light your creative fire. To bust your boredom, consider creating a crochet surprise for a stranger. Have you ever seen the movie, “Pay It Forward”? The film lays out the idea of performing a genuine act of kindness for a complete stranger, and expecting nothing in return. Why not apply that to crocheting? You can work up something amazing and then give it to a stranger.
Crocheting can be a wonderful skill because it spreads so much joy and love. Crocheters use their talents to shower gifts upon family, friends, and acquaintances. Many wonderful crocheters also work up patterns to donate to charity. What makes crocheted gifts so special is the dedication and talent it takes to make them in the first place. At AllFreeCrochet.com, there’s plenty of inspiration to share the joy.
As a boredom buster, make these unique works of yarn art to surprise someone!
