Crocheting Is Addictive
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I started to crochet when I was only six years old. Both of my grandmothers were the crafty sort. One of them designed clothing and was fortunate enough to turn her craft into a business. My other grandmother was the crocheter. I remember sitting with her and learning the basics. Not only was it challenging and fun to learn....it was wonderful to bond with her and spend the one on one time doing something we both enjoyed so much. I know this is the reason I still crochet today and get so much pleasure from a ball of yarn and hook. It's like listening to a great song that brings back special memories.

Many, many years later, I now have had the opportunity to teach my own daughter the pleasures of sitting down and turning a ball of, as she says, pretty colored yarn into her very own scarf, hat or blanket.

Crochet supplies are as simple as a ball of yarn, hook and pattern. Easily portable and a great alternative to all of the electronics our children are addicted to today. I have found it to be an easy way to take the static of everything out of our lives for a few moments and go back to mother and daughter time.

Crocheting is easily learned. There are some great websites that teach the basics and tons of free patterns.

http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/p/index-of-patterns.html- The Art of Crochet by Teresa This is a great source for beginner crocheters to learn to crochet. Lots of pictures and videos to help you along your way to becoming an avid crocheter.

http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&learnToCrochet=1- Lion Brand Yarns has some great tutorials and crochet patterns.

http://www.bernat.com/learntocrochet.php - Bernat, step by step pictures and explanations of the basics of crocheting.

There are loads of patterns, tutorials and supplies on the internet. I have found a great source to be on youtube. If you like to watch someone do it and follow along it's the way to go.

If you want a low cost, easy to start hobby with endless uses this may be the one for you. Start with something small and easily finished, like a potholder. A finished project will make you want to do more and more and more....smiles. Good luck, have fun and keep on crocheting!!!!
