Shirley and Debbie - I dub thee honorary crafty people. :-D You have crafter's spirit in you.
And no one said you have to be GOOD at what you take up as a hobby. ;-) I just play mostly. I like keeping my hands busy.
Javamommy - I bet some of the play time you have with your kids is crafty!
Puppylover - yes, it is nice just browsing through the stuff, isn't it? Very mellowing.
There is something called Crochenit that uses a really big hook - it is easy to see and you can make anything using it. It may work with failing vision, but you'd know better than I. Check this out for more: www.crochenit.net/
There is even regular crochet - I have a crochet hook for doing rugs - it is about
as thick as my thumb. You can use it on large, chunky yarn, or fabric strips.
Or do you think you'd enjoy spinning yarn? I think you may be able to do that with limited vision. It's a very tactile experience. I use a drop spindle, which is very cheap (under $20) - not a spinning wheel. Very soothing - even if I am not that good at making perfectly even yarn yet - I still love doing it. (And uneven yarn is still useful) This is where I learned: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gXTWgMeMgI
Maybe none of my ideas are things that appeal to you - but I just hate to hear that someone who loves to craft might not feel there is anything for them. I hope you can find something that appeals to you.
Why my username? It is real life nickname. I love chickens. Will have my flock of hens one day! :D .............. DX'd with Fibromyalgia, chronic hives, sensitivities and allergies, migraines with auras, tmj, and IBS. Not sure what else!
