I work for IBM and like to spend my free time with crochet. I'm 62 and have been crocheting for 38 years. I can knit and purl, but haven't much experience with knitting tho am interested. Have enough yarn for another 20 years at least.
Knitting and crocheting -- and most crafts, I suspect -- can be a pretty solitary activity, and that's part of what we like about it. It gives us a chance to think and regroup and problem-solve while we bliss out making something pretty. But it's also a good thing to get together with others like ourselves and be reminded that good things are meant to be shared.
