Crochet- becoming a hooker –krys lefler
So , I have always been crafty. My mom is crafty, so I get it from her. Mom could always crochet, and although I had NO interest in crochet and more interest in fashion design as a teen, I ADMIRED crochet. It looked too darn fun!
Fast forward to adulthood, living in Asheville and enduring a VERY hard winter. Mom has sent a package of random crafts, included is a skein of cheap acrylic and an H hook. Internet is finally back up and running, log onto Google and find instructions on How to Crochet.
Struggle with chain stitch till I get a grove going.
Struggle with SC til it feels right.
HDC and double. Making my stitches even.
To most crocheters, this is rudimentary. To me a bloody miracle I can hold a hook and craptastic yarn and do anything at all. I have two hands that barely work when they want due to an injury that resulted in severed nerves in both hands.
Crocheting opens my crafting horizons. Soon I am hooking any long bit of ‘yarn’ that crosses my path.
This is the drug that eventually turns younger hookers into yarn bombers . J
