Tactile stimming: Day 8 of the Relax and Hook blog hop

Tactile stimming: For Day 8 of the Relax and Hook blog hop, please join Andrea of YarnAndy (an autistic crochet designer) and myself (a neurodivergent crochet teacher) as we talk about:

  • crochet and ADHD, anxiety and autism
  • how mindful crochet can be a useful, portable, tactile form of stimming
  • Andrea's contribution to the Relax and Hook event and ebook: The Raspberry Croissant Shawl

The Raspberry Croissant Shawl

Today's featured FREE pattern is for The Raspberry Croissant Shawl from YarnAndy. Andrea says about this beautiful shawl:

"Can be made in any weight of yarn, the pattern grows seamlessly from one row to the next, you can make this while watching your favorite show, while traveling in the car, train, plane, while listening and talking to people. The pattern includes charts and a video with the first pattern repeat."

You can find Andrea here:

    Watching a replay, sent a link to my sister who was recently diagnosed with autism. I’m beginning to think I have some traits as well. We both are in our 60s.
