A Review of "Crochet Saved My Life" by Kathryn Vercillo
When Kathryn finally released her book Crochet Saved My Life I was beyond thrilled. I've been waiting for the release of this book for quite sometime. In fact, I almost shared my story but ended up chickening out.
Now, that I've read the many stories both within her book and throughout the web I am not so scared. I'll share a little bit of my story in tomorrow's post. Today, I want to talk about Kathryn's book.
I bought the Kindle edition and started reading it right away. I loved reading her account of how she healed from depression and how crochet had a part in that. There is something about someone sharing something so deep that touches the reader and touched me, she did.

You will reap the benefits of Kathryn's hard work in researching these studies. You'll find links to all of the resources she used as well as a list of recommended reading.
I purchased the Soft Cover as well as I was curious as how a self published book looked using Create Space by Amazon.com. It's great by the way. There are a few typo's but don't let that stop you from reading it. (Funny how I can pick out typo's in other peoples' works but miss many in my own.)
