Crafting with Chronic Pain

As a way to feel productive even when my body refuses to work, I do yarn work. Currently only crochet, but I plan to go into needle binding (ancient type of yarn work) and eventually knitting and possibly bobbin lace.

I prefer to work in natural materials like wool, linen and silk, though the only material I dislike is cotton, because I have yet to find good threads that doesn’t split as I try to work it.

Most of this blog will be sharing pictures of works-in-progress, though occasionally also talking about project ideas or pictures of yarn hauls.
