Mandala For Wink “A Creative Being”

I know many of you joined the 2014 CAL with Wink and shared my sadness upon hearing of her stuggles with life and her final decision to bring it to a close.

Crochet Mandala for Wink

She was such a talent and an inspiration to so many of us, her blog called A Creative Being has such an apt title, it is brimming with gorgeous projects, even if you are not a crafter you are sure to be impressed by the colourful creations. It was a pleasure to pick up on this opportunity to show some hooky respect and pay tribute using one of Wink’s Mandala designs.

Crochet Mandala For Wink Yarn

I thought it would be quite fitting to use some of the remaining cotton yarn left over from the blanket made for my closest friend following the CAL on A Creative Being. All the patterns for each week are available to download so if you wanted to make a blanket.

If you would like to make a mandala too to help raise awareness of depression you can read more about it here from crochet concupiscence.

      Thank you for sharing a link to my Mandala Memorial to Wink. Depression is a terrible affliction and can be so hard to recognise.

    I’m was saddened by the news too :~( and I just can’t believe that she’s gone like that.. was thinking if it was some kind of joke or something.. I’ve come to terms now that life is really short and I pray wink is a better place filled with many pretty yarns.

    Reblogged this on Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl and commented:
    One of the things I like best about the fibre community is how it pulls together in support at the times support is needed.
    Please read this post over at The Grange Range and click through to see Wink’s lovely work if you haven’t before.
    I’m looking forward to participating in the mandela project and hope there’ll be a huge response.
    Take care everyone! K~xx

      Thank you so much for re blogging the post, Wink was a very special talented lady and her demise makes me feel so sad. We can hope that by crafting a Mandala in her honour it may raise awareness of depression.
