Of course, several of the women mentioned that their husbands or friends said, "No really, where are you going tonight?" when they told them they were headed to a crocheting party. One even asked if "crocheting party" was some kind of code for "bar." And it's certain we are not the typical grannies or dowdy types one might associate with the word "crochet."
I think all of us have a desire to create. It's inspiring to hold a skein of beautiful yarn and wonder what to make from it. It's comforting to form a beautiful and/or useful thing with our very own hands. It's fun to wear something that we made or give it as a gift.
And it's even better to do those things with a group of like-minded women while gabbing, feasting, and sipping wine. Just drop me an email if you'd like to join in on the next party. It's a great way to spend an evening.
