Crochet

I think I need to learn to crochet. I mean, I know one stitch that can make comedy scarves my cats like to play with. But there is a particular sculptural quality that crochet has that doesn’t really exist with other fabrics, crochet can get really abstract without looking contrived therefore maintaining it’s natural made by hand aesthetic. I think that’s why I covet these crochet necklaces… it’s statement jewelery that keeps your neck warm and it’s oh-so-lovely. I’m thinking of getting one, perhaps to wear with a strapless cocktail dress to a party, or I don’t know, but I thought I’d share this with you.
