My friend Amber is the crochet queen and you know what? I’m getting jealous! Her myspace page is filled with pics of her and her cute creations, from cozy beanies to comfy scarves. I think I need to join the competition and learn the fine art of hooking! Crocheting has been a popular pastime for ages but is now becoming a trendy hobby with a celebrity following including Madonna, Julie Roberts, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Unfortunately, I am not the most crafty girl in the world and I have been know to be slightly clumsy. To help get me started, I am buying the Cozy Crochet Kit by Melissa Leapman, it’s a instructional kit for beginner’s like me and includes five hooks, a ball of yarn, and 25 patterns to learn. Another popular crocheting must-have is the book, Stich n’ Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker, by Debbie Stoller. It’s a fact-filled, witty bestseller perfect for the novice to the best hooker on the block and you gotta love the name! I’ve heard crocheting is both relaxing and addictive so I am ready to get started- Amber watch out!
