Project Understanding’s Crocheted Creatures

One of our ladies, Velya, at Project Understanding is an expert crocheter. She comes up with the cutest, most adorable little animals! Crochet has been a very helpful coping strategy for her and her amazing work will soon be featured in our upcoming Knitting in Recovery Etsy Shop!

One of our young and brand new crocheters from Project Understanding came to class and had made this at home! All I had taught her was chain stitch, single crochet and double crochet. She figured out how to design clothes all by herself. A natural talent!

Project Understanding Knitting for Mother’s Day

Another wonderful Fundraising Event with Project Understanding and First Friday in Ventura, California. We have knitters and crocheters ranging from 8 – 60 years old. They are fabulous, and what a special community we have created with our coming together to knit and crochets. Healing, Smiles, Joy, Laughter all around. And we get to share our beautiful work, raise funds for Project Understanding and ourselves at the same time!

Project Understanding Easter Knits
