A great retiree Hobby, learn to wire crochet wire

November 02, 2015 2 Comments

Retirement can be a great opportunity to do all those things you never had the time , energy or patience to do . It's the perfect opportunity to get back to all those hobbies you had when you were a teen , and get new ones you came across but never had the time to dedicate in order to learn them.

The other day one of my sweetest facebook friends left a comment to one of my posts, I shared the photo you see here below of the studio all prepared for the ladies to come in for a wire crochet workshop.

Nelida's comment gave me a whole different angle to what I do, in my perception I was sharing my wire crochet know how with a community of crafters, with no special attention to what age group they belong to. I did notice it appealed most to women over 35, but I thought it was simply that the more mature ladies had the time to write me, I never realized the great advantages it has for crafty retirees.

In addition to the satisfaction that crafting brings, I have written in the past about what a great exercise for the brain is learning a new craft that occupies the 2 hands. Health benefits are great by themselves but I don't believe one can dive into a new hobby such as wire crochet without enjoying it , just like we all want to eat healthy , but if it’s not tasty , it’s never going to last..

In this case I can assure you , that although there is a learning curve to wire crochet, once you get the hang of it , it’s like riding a bicycle , it’s yours forever. You will be able to make a lot of appreciated gifts for your daughters , daughters in law , friends and even your grand daughters.

I would even dare say they might ask you to teach them so they can show off themselves they can crochet with wire.

“Good luck, What you do is  blessed by many, who at this late age look for an angel to teach us, because they had no time before.. love.. Bless!”     Nelida , Hollywood, Florida

I know for most of you the sea and sun holidays are over, unless of course you are on the southern hemisphere side of life ;)  so this might be a suggestion for this year or for the next, I warmly recommend taking a compact crochet kit with you when you go on vacation, take only the essential tools and a few materials, so it is not too heave, do that just in case you will get inspired like I do ;)

Those of you that are with me for a while must have already heard me say this, those of you that haven't actually hear it must have noticed it, I LOVE simplicity, in my view simple is clear, simple is easy, simple is fun and we should enjoy every moment ;) don't get me wrong, I'm not saying challenges can't be fun too, but simplicity has its charm.
