|March is Crochet Month|
March is a very special month. Sure, the flowers are starting to show and the weather is warming up, but that's not why - March is Crochet Month! Though hooks and yarn are a welcome accessory all year long, in March we stop and take a moment to appreciate this fine craft.
If you have to ask, "Why Crochet?", here are just a few of the reasons why this fabulous craft is here to stay.
Need to rush out the door? Toss your project into your bag and don't worry about losing a stitch. Make a mistake? Just pull out a few stitches and you're back on track. Hate seaming? Grab that hook and finish in no time flat. Need a gift in a hurry? Crochet is fast fast fast. From amigirumis and toys to quick afghans, to house decor galore, thank goodness for crochet.
Whether you filet crochet, tunisian crochet, make hairpin lace, or Irish crochet, grab your hooks and your yarn because this month is for you.
