I was skeptical when my mother presented me with a gift certificate for Spirit Work, a local knitting/design/yarn-selling shop. I didn't want to learn how to knit. Rather, I wanted to learn to crochet! Yes, crochet. It sounds so much more sophisticated (it's French, after all, right?) than knitting. Spinsters knit and I am definitely not a spinster.
Despite my protests, I went on their website to check and see when the next beginner class starts. What a relief.
Check out what we're going to learn how to make:
My mind can rest easy knowing I will not be toting around a bag of yarn for tissue-box cozies and potholders and other Havisham-y type creations. Whew.
