I love the delicate patterns of old crocheted table runners and placemats. I learnt how to crochet as a child from my grandma and I find it really relaxing. Crochet is a great example of a craft that can become an art form in the right hands. This blog has some tips on modern uses for crochet and has some hints on how to learn crochet for people who are learning as adults. Learning crochet can be very relaxing and is a great way to connect with other people from older generations. I hope other crafty types can use my blog to start developing their skills and forming crafting groups in their own communities.
