Role of crochet today

I love crochet since taking it up 5 years ago.  I find it very relaxing and allows me to be very creative.  However in this time of computer games, TV, and cheap clothes and other craft items how relevant is it?  I personally think it can be very relevant as it does provide an alternative form of activity, teaching patience, and allowing creativity away from computers, using physical not virtual materials, that can be held, put on display or given as presents that will be valued by those receiving them.  I valued handcraft items given to me by my Grandma, and I now make items for my family, very different gift from those in the shops.  Computers have their place but I think handcrafts are still very important.

  1. It is so nice to give someone a gift that you have made yourself, I couldn’t agree with you more.

    • I’m still making gifts, getting the hang of blogging. I hope you are well. I am glad I did the blogging course.
