 About the Book 

Some learned to crochet at a grandmothers knee and now keep the faith. Others sought comfort in the craft during dark and troubling times. And still others found in crocheting a way of making something that perfectly expresses the artist inside. YetMoreSome learned to crochet at a grandmothers knee and now keep the faith. Others sought comfort in the craft during dark and troubling times. And still others found in crocheting a way of making something that perfectly expresses the artist inside. Yet others, of course, needed a vest. How people came to crocheting, what theyve made of it, what memories it has added to their lives, and what moments of insight and simple pleasure its brought them-these are the stories told in Hooked: A Crocheters Stash of Wit and Wisdom. A tribute to the age-old art, Hooked is embellished with charming illustrations from vintage pattern booklets. Among the contributors-with anecdotes ranging from the whimsical to the philosophical-are newcomers and those well known in crocheting circles from Lily Chin, Jennifer Hansen, Karen Searle, and Gwen Blakely Kinsler to Lela Nargi, Kay Dorn, Nilda Mesa, Deborah Robson, Annie Modesitt, and Linda Permann.
