In the Mood is a simple way to track your moods and combine it with your crochet skills, to create a personalised crochet project that you can be proud of. 

Tracking your mood is well documented to be a successful way to care for your mental health. A detailed article from Calm.com details the 5 benefits of tracking your mood: 

  1. Creates space to feel your feelings
  2. Helps you take better care of yourself
  3. Recognise patterns and triggers that impact your mood
  4. Allow you to communicate better with others
  5. Allow you to recognise if extra support is needed

Crochet Makes You Feel Good!

Crochet is cited as being many people’s happy place – giving us a time out from the world around us, a chance to concentrate on the repetitive stitches, or get lost in a complicated pattern to quieten the noise in our heads.

In the Mood combines the benefit of tracking our moods with stitching up small project or section of a project each week, that doesn’t take up a lot of time, but that can create a routine of assessing our moods and embracing our feelings.
