Why Do You Crochet?
How did it all begin for me? Years ago, while in my teens, my incredibly talented grandmother taught most of her grandchildren how to crochet, including myself. Then we were all making blankets, very large blankets. I'm sure now that it was her clever way of keeping us occupied. My grandmother taught me a few simple things that I didn't realize until I was grown and she was gone. These things were: how to see the best in people, how cooking brings people together, and how to crochet were the stand-out lessons.
Now when I crochet, I find it incredibly relaxing and therapeutic. I have my grandmother to thank. I find myself making all kinds of scarves, cowls, and hats. I have enough to fill a few large boxes. I have resorted to giving them away to friends and family members. What else can I make, I ask?
