Sharing Tradition in CrochetBy Tameko Barnette – 7 Comments
As we all know, crochet is a wonderful way to relax, make new friends, and create all kinds of practical items. As I started thinking about this, I thought about traditions. While we live in a world that is rapidly changing and we’re all learning how to embrace new ways of thinking and doing things there are still a few things we can honor along the way…through the art of crocheting.
1. Sports. With football season in the Fall and Winter, basketball quickly approaching, and a host of other sports to keep us all occupied, crocheting your favorite team colors into your scarf, afghan, and other items would be a great idea.
2. Family. Sitting with your mother, grandmother, aunt, or sister to crochet is another excellent idea. The stories you could share and just time spent getting to know one another is a tradition all in itself. Adding crochet to it would be even better.
3. Party. Yes, I said party. You should throw a crochet party. Create a new tradition. Everyone can bring their favorite yarns, hooks, and other crochet tools. Trade items or tools. Share patterns. Of course, make sure there is a food and music flowing all evening.
These are just a few ideas to keep time-honored traditions alive, while creating new traditions to be enjoyed all year long.
Do you have a crochet tradition?
