What's All This Hype About Worry Worms? Story, Questions & Answers
"People are going crazy over crochet worry worms all over the world! When I first heard about them last year, I started crocheting some of these cute little worms as well... My kids immediately fell in love with them and I instantly realized how special these little squiggly creatures really are. I wrote up my own version of the worry worm crochet pattern to help interested people figure out how to crochet these cute little squigglies. I took a few photos of them and sent them to my family abroad. They had no idea what they were, of course. My brother asked me, "So what are these worry worms all about?" I had a basic idea that they're easy crochet projects for kind-hearted people who want to spread some love in the world. I started doing some research about them and thought I'd share my interesting finds with you here. I traced worry worms back to a FB Group called "Random Acts of Crochet Kindness", where its members crochet these worry worms as well as other small creatures, butterflies, hearts, whatever... add a little note or poem to go along with them, then package and hide these crocheted works out and about for random people to find. This small activity really has a huge impact on its finders and creators alike (as you will discover in people's reactions to finding them. I'll show you what I mean in the post). So have a look at this post and you'll find the most common questions people have about these cute little crochet worry worms."
