A friend of mine liked to watch movies online on crocheting that they had stored on their DVR. I had never really been a fan of crafts, especially crocheting. I always thought crocheting was for older women, and that it would be a boring hobby. After watching that show, I found out that I couldn’t have been more wrong about crocheting. The show really showed the interesting side of crocheting. It was pretty informative and showed all the different kinds of things you can do with just a needle and some yarn.
The host of the show went over a lot of basic techniques that beginners can use to crochet some pretty neat things. She performed various loops and stitches that looked complicated at first, but after explaining them, they seemed pretty easy. She then showed off some of the things she had created using the various techniques. She was able to make an afghan, a bedspread, a shawl, a cap, and even a full sweater, all by moving the needle and hook together. She was even able to make a cap during the program. She had so much experience with crocheting that she performed stitches at lightning speed. It was like her hands were some kind of sewing machine. The cap she made look so good that it could be sold at a department store and anyone would think that it was made by some major clothing company.
After watching that show, I’ve been inspired to take up crocheting. If I work hard enough and dedicate time to it, I can become as skilled at crocheting as the host in the show. I could probably make my own items and sell them to people in the neighborhood. I’m going to go to the craft store as soon as possible and get some yarn and a needle.
