When starting a crochet project, be sure that you are 110% ZEN! What do I mean by this? I’m talking about your comfort level – both mentally and physically. Here’s my very brief, and to the point, Zen List:
1.) All the materials I need for my project are at my side and ready to assist me when called upon.
2.) My room is filled with superior, natural light. If that’s not a possibility, a nice, soft lamp light will do just as well. I say ‘soft light’ because other types of lighting tend to give me headaches. OUCH! Don’t want that to happen halfway through your crochet project. Adjust the lighting as you see fit.
3.) My favorite drink (AKA: goold ol’ H2O – I know, I know, but it really is!) is handy, and within reach.
4.) Now, this is the MOST IMPORTANT of all – PEACE AND QUIET! Yes, it’s difficult (if not impossible) to achieve with kids around, I know. But, give it a try. Peace and quiet really and truly make a huge difference in how quickly and effectively your project will work up.
Say it with me, “ZEN.”
