When the topic of crochet or knitting comes up across various social media sites I often read about folks who crochet or knit being looked at differently and being told crocheting or knitting is for older folks and I simply cannot comprehend as to why? I guess the astigmatism runs rather deep and it’s a shame some folks think this way. I believe whether you crochet or knit the heart creates an element of surprise and satisfaction with every WIP (work in progress) allowing the creator to feel totally accomplished and greatly satisfied . There are so many pieces being created right now which quite frankly are purely works of art unable to be duplicated on any man made machine. So the next time you see someone crocheting take time to stop and admire the workmanship ask questions almost anyone would appreciate this gesture. If you request items to be made remember it’s handmade and will last for ever . And if you get a chance try crochet or knitting start with a simple scarf or Afghan once you do you will be hooked. And then … It happens you become a yarn hoarder . But that’s for another blog entry… Crocheting or Knitting is not just for older folks and now you know .
