    I love it that you are about more than just crochet. I love the fact that you are not a yarn snob. Keep being real that’s why I watch and follow you.

    Bang on. Mr. Rogers would be proud of you, Mikey. You encourage others to learn, have confidence in themselves, try their best, and be creative by sharing your craft. Thank you.

    You will never know how many lives you touch. Especially with today’s social media we are much more invisible. I have a very painful illness for which is no cure and no medication and it keeps me bed bound. When my 24/7 pain gets to much, my head starts buzzing and I can’t think straight anymore.
    I recently picked up crocheting again and I discovered when I watch one of you tutorial videos I instantly relax. It’s something in your voice that calms my nervous system and I’m able to relax and push the pain to the background for a while.
    I know it will sound silly to others who are healthy. But for me it is a godsend. Others listen to meditation tapes, they don’t do anything for me. Often I don’t like the voice or you can hear they only do this because it’s their job, not because they care about people.
    So thank you Mikey, you see, you touch people’s lives for the better without even knowing it.

      Like you I find his voice comforting when all is hey wire around me. I love to crochet and listening to you teach is such a welcome to a single life. I have my ups and downs but I can always count on listening and watching one of your videos to helps me. Continue to teach you very good at it. May God Bless you and keep you safe and continuing to heal.

    Thank you MIkey for this. I was able to watch Mr. Rogers. His show was never shown on our television in my country. Yet I read about Mr. Rogers about his death. That was the only time I knew who he was. With his speech in this video, I really cried so hard. How it would have hurt him to compare what social media was in his time and now. God bless his soul.

    I loved this article. Thank you for bringing it up. Humility is a forgotten attitude by so many these days.

    It may not be crochet related, but you took the time to share a little part of you. Crochet is what brings us together as a community, but we aren’t all about crochet…. and it brought tears to MY eyes too…

    Michael,
    I’m glad you have mentioned the topic going off of crochet. I’d like to clarify that there are many other crocheting sites where everyone is helpful and positive but unfortunately there are some that are not. And it’s difficult to stay on the topic of only crochet when the rest of our life is going on. These are communities of wonderful people who are like family. It’s hard to not share when something tragic or wonderful happens. If that happens, a gentle reminder would be sufficient. I have seen crude reminders on all sites.

    Thank you!

    I’ve always liked Mr. Rogers! I believed that the kind words he spoke on the show were the only kind and gentle words ever heard by some of the children watching. This is spot on Mikey!

    I just love how you take the time to share something like this, something that has touched your heart. Sharing crocheting has been the focus, the common interest of this group. Yet , every once in awhile you bring a very special moment to our attention.
    Sharing moments that are outside of crochet enriches us all.
