Kathryn Vercillo, book author and blogger at Crochet Concupiscence

I am a San Francisco based crochet lover and writer who blogs at Crochet Concupiscence.
I learned to crochet from my mom as a child but I really immersed myself in the craft in my late twenties when I was coping with a debilitating bout of chronic depression.
Crochet was one of the main things that helped me heal and get through that time. It paused my ruminating thoughts, lifted my spirit, relaxed my mind and body and helped me to feel creative and productive again during one of the darkest spells of my life!
