A Beautiful Essay

I just finished reading a most incredible essay regarding our Grandmother's crochet, and the differences between knitting and crochet. I just have to pass it along. It is on the Crochet Insider site of Dora Ohrenstein, and the essay can be found on this page:
Make sure you scroll down to the middle of the page where the beautiful rose, green, and black afghan is, to the article entitled, "The age-old battle continues: Crochet vs. Knitting. Who will win?".
I was so moved by some of the thoughts in it, that at some point, as I could picture Tanis crocheting with her grandmother's hook, tears started falling down my cheek. Tanis, I think you should finish your grandmother's afghan. Somehow, I think she would like that!
Being both a knitter and a crocheter myself, I, too, have never understood all the misunderstanding surrounding the controversy of knitting vs crocheting.
Thank you, Tanis, for writing so passionately and so well about how I have always felt about the subject. You were able to put into words feelings that I was never able to articulate. Bravo!
Pin It!
