My mother’s passion was quilting. ;)
Little is known of crochet's early history. It seems likely that the earliest crochet was made using fingers, rather than the hooks used today. There are theories that crochet could have existed as early as 1500 BC, as part of a nun's work, which included needlepoint lace and bobbin lace.
The word crochet is derived from the French word 'croche', meaning hook. Crocheting, like knitting, consists of pulling loops of material through other loops, but additionally incorporates wrapping the working material around the hook one or more times. Crochet differs from knitting in that only one stitch is active at one time. Crochet has its own system of symbols to represent stitch types.
We seem to always want everything to be perfect, but sometimes, the best “memory items” are the ones we remember,
because of their imperfections. :)
