Crochet with purpose

Hello all you crochet lovers,

I wanted to say a few words concerning

The Ugly truth about the fashion industry

Well the fashion industry is one of the major polluting industries in the world. The production and distribution of the crops, fibers, and garments used in fashion all contribute to differing forms of environmental pollution, including water, air, and soil pollution. The fashion industry is responsible for 10 percent of the carbon footprint of the world as well as it being the second greatest polluter of local freshwater in the world. Some of the main factors that contribute to this industrial caused pollution are the vast overproduction of fashion items, the use of synthetic fibers, and the agriculture pollution of fashion crops.

Ive been working on designing crochet clothing for my family and I to contribute less to this issue. Plus the best part, crochet can be undone and the yarn can be reused. Totally stellar right!?!

Plus crochet clothing is totally hot, check out some of these styles on pinterest and share why yall love crocheting 😁

Who I am and why I’m here

Hello all,

For my first blog ever, I will be telling a little about myself, why I started a blog, and what may be seen here. Okay here we go:

My name is Darlene, I am 28 years old, married and my greatest two blessings in life call me “mom.” I am a stay at home-homeschool-parent (if that is a thing) and my husband runs his own automotive upholstery business from our home. We are always all together, which is amazing.

One of my biggest passions is crocheting, it relaxes me when things get wild around here. Another passion of mine is DIYing (again if thats a thing). My preference for pretty much everything is DIY. Sometimes my husband thinks I am crazy when I tell him my biggest dream is to have a farm and grow our own fruits, veggies and raise our own meat. That is the good life! Some other things I love to do are woodworking and sewing.

The reason I started this blog is to make friends and learn new things while sharing what I have learned. So on this blog you will find an assortment of hand made crafts and DIY projects. Hope if anyone finds this blog you enjoy and please share any tips or advice. This is my first blog and first blog post ever 😁
