Maybe it's the awesome crochet hook sale I happened upon. These hooks were about 40% off when I bought them on Amazon. I think they are still part of some kind of sale on Knit Picks, if you're interested. They are so cute and retro, it's like they belong next to the Pyrex and Tupperware in the kitchen. They have to produce something good.
I don't know why I have put off learning it for this long. My grandmother loved to crochet at one time. I still use her afghan when we watch tv at night. I also have had Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker book for years and never made a thing from it.
I'm kind of excited. I know how to chain and I am deft at pulling loops through loops with needles... so this should be a piece of cake, right? Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!!!
