What do you like about this subject?

Crochet is a way to relax, the rhythm of stitchng is soothing. The final product I take great pride and pleasure in, but I beleive the best part of it all is the reaction from a person that is given, and to see your piece being used and part of someones history.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I would like to see more people show interest in this great craft, so it can live for years to come

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

This craft was originally done by men.
