Hook to Heal Book Review

hook to heal cover

I was so touched to see this book review of Hook to Heal by Story Skeins who did a 12-week open-community process of working through the exercises in my book. Her review includes the following excerpt, which really felt good because it seemed like she totally “got” what I was trying to do with my work. I generally just put the work out there and allow others to take from it what they will but it feels good when what I wanted to express matches the experience the reader has!

Review excerpt:

“Firstly, I have to say, this is a brilliant book. It challenged me from the outset because it wasn’t what I expected from a crochet book. There are no pictures! As I worked through the book I came to realise that this was a genius decision. Vercillo challenges us in every chapter with crochet exercises that get to the heart of a topic. What would pictures do? They would give us something to aim for, something born of someone else’s imagination and thought process. In this almost entirely text-only book, we are set free from attempting to mimic a result. We are able to use the exercises to question ourselves, to explore creation in all manner of ways, and to just see the outcome of whatever comes from that process without the burdon of expectation or comparison.”
