I thought learning to crochet would be fun and reduce stress. My friend signed us up for classes and we were very excited...Well, the first class was pretty intense to say the least and we laughed at ourselves a lot. However, we're going to keep going and finish the blanket we started. I'm feeling a little anxious about it but according to redheart.com  http://www.redheart.com/articles/health-benefits-of-crocheting-and-knitting there are many health benefits to crocheting.  Stay tuned for pictures and blanket updates.
