Book Giveaway: “Crochet Saved My Life”

A little while ago, Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence emailed me about her new book “Crochet Saved My Life: The Mental and Physical Health Benefits of Crochet.” I asked if she would like to offer a free copy to one of my blog readers, and she said yes!

To be perfectly honest, I haven’t had time yet to read the whole book, but I have gotten about half way. I didn’t want to wait too much longer to set up this giveaway for you!

Kathryn shares her journey of how crocheting helped her overcome life-threatening depression. In reaching out to the crochet community, she also met others who experienced the healing and therapeutic power of yarn and a hook. You will follow Kathryn’s personal story, her scientific research, and the stories of 24 other women from all walks of life. Her writing is thoughtful, never saccharine, and her book is an uplifting and educational thank-you to a craft that most people see as just a hobby.

On Amazon.com, the book is available as a paperback as well as a Kindle download. If you are an Amazon Prime member, the book is free in the lending library!

Kathryn is kindly offering one of my blog readers a free copy: a paperback version for U.S. readers, and an electronic version for non-U.S. readers.

    I did learn to crochet some months after I learned I was suffering severe depression. Rarely go a day without it ever since.

    I am thoroughly loving the Homespun yarn and have been making little blankets for my nieces that they can take in their van or use at play time. Plus shawls for my sister in law going through a difficult time, another for my dear friend Traci, and thinking of gifting one to myself because OMG this yarn is yummy. Just started an externship in a phlebotomy lab and the girls their are so amazing to me that I think I can whip up some scrumptious scarves to say thank you when my time there is over.
    I would love to have a copy of this book – it sounds amazing and I know that crocheting is a magical undertaking that helps with depression – if I am making chemo caps or gifts, I am out of myself and in a more positive place. It is such a good thing.
