I have a confession to make. The second time I picked up crocheting again, I was hooked. That was two years ago, when my ultra-stretched belly was growing a baby. Sleep was rare in those last few weeks before the little one decided he's ready to come out. To while away the time, I thought I'll give crocheting another try.
So much have changed since I first learned the craft. I was sixteen when mom first taught me. From home decor to fashion, it found it's way to the hearts of many. Crochet has evolved to be a prevalent craft for even the younger generation.
For me, it's an 'art' by itself. Just like any medium, it can be articulated into many unexpected art forms. Someday, I plan to build a six foot fiber installation using crochet. The type that will make one stop and wonder, 'That was crocheted?'
But I'll save that for another day or year. Today, it's jewelry-making.
With my hook, of course.
