My Crochet Habit Could Be Yours Too

In third grade, my school offered specific arts and crafts classes. I decided to take crochet and since then I have made more doilies than any sane person should be responsible for. I also spread this strange addiction that is crochet to others and readily teach the skills even though I’ve been told I hold my hook wrong. As if the yarn knows the difference. Below are some of my favorite sites and references. To see some great crochet projects and patterns (not mine), please see my Pinterest board about crochet.

What Not To Crochet
This is just too funny. A blog about things no one should try to crochet. I love the miserable model pictures. Crochet should be used wisely for good, not torture.
