I thought I would say why it is I do what I do.
First and foremost I crochet for escape, avoid depression a sense of accomplishment (insert any other self affirming reasons here).
Sometimes I like to escape from the mundanity that is my life. If I have no other engagements or things I can escape my house with, I crochet.
I am running into a problem though, pain. My wrists, hands, elbow, well really from the base of my neck to the tips of my fingers hurt if I get on a roll. I am not sure what to do about it though. If I see a doctor and they tell me to stop crocheting, how do I fill that self medicating component that my yarn and hook provide me?
I also have pretty severe ADD. I either cannot focus on anything for long or hyper focus on something. It also has this strange effect on my crafting. I get bored easily. I hardly ever repeat a project. Almost never complete the 2nd, slipper, mitten, sock etc. And that causes me to spend hours searching for the high I get from that just right pattern.
Well now I have it in my head to look for a project. Be back another time for more musing.
