This Week’s Holiday: Crochet Week
Crocheting is wonderful, and can be as mindless as a repeating pattern afghan, or as intricate as a Tunisian crochet lace shawl. You can do so many wonderful projects in crochet, and you don’t need many tools. A crochet hook, some yarn, and a pair of scissors (you don’t even need the scissors if you have really sharp teeth). It might be good to have a pattern to work from as well, but if you’re creative, that isn’t absolutely necessary. Reading a pattern was a new experience for me where crochet was concerned. My grandmother taught me some basic stitches, but that was all. I taught myself pattern reading. I now am the proud owner of about 100 crochet patterns. More than I could do in a lifetime, but I never want to be without “the next one” and the next and the next after that.
I’ve also taken classes in crochet methods. I started with Craftsy classes and moved on to other sites’ offerings. I’ve discovered some great teachers along the line. Lily Chin is one of them; I take every class she offers.
Well, enough about my love for yarn and crochet in particular. I wish you a lovely crochet week. If you haven’t given it a try, you might consider it. It’s easy, fun, and portable. I’d miss it if it wasn’t a part of my life.
Thank you for joining me here for Crochet Week. Do come back to visit!
