So, I learned yesterday that a skin cancer on my shin is more complicated than the simple in-office removals I’ve had in the past. This will require hospital admission and surgery under general anesthesia. (The muscle and tissue will have to be separated from the bone - nice, huh?)

Anywho, I was/am really bummed about the pending procedure and recovery. (Surgeon said it will be painful. 😣) When I talked with Hubs about it, he responded with a pep talk:

“You go ahead and schedule time off. You can relax in your recliner with your crochet, and I’ll bring your threads to you.”

‘Threads’… isn’t that the sweetest? 😊❤

Crochet magic tips

• focus your intent into each stitch to make a powerful spell

•crochet can be used in any kind of spell, it binds your energy into whatever you’re making

• choose a relevant yarn color: green for growth and prosperity, pink for love, red for energizing, black for protection, etc

• choose a relevant stitch: slip stitch for slipping out of difficult situations, double crochet for doubling your money, etc.

• choose a relevant fiber: silk for wealth, bamboo for strength and flexibility, etc.

• crochet can be used to make many different shapes, choose or create a pattern with symbols and shapes relevant to your intent: make a bunny for fertility, make a dog for protection, etc.
