Crochet has been undergoing a wonderful renaissance in the last several years.
I was taught to crochet by my mother when I was about 8 years old. It was the late sixties and crochet was hot. I crocheted my way through the early 70's and insisted on it in the early '80's. I finally sold all my yarn and hooks in the late 80's. About 6 years ago, I picked up the hook again all because of a beaded crochet rope. I wanted to bead crochet, something I'd never done as a kid. I'm glad crochet is back and as with every revived craft, it's got a different twist on it. This time, it's jewelry.
