The word is derived from the French word "crochet", meaning hook. Crocheting, similar to knitting, consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops. Crochet differs from knitting in that only one loop is active at one time (the sole exception being Tunisian crochet), and that a crochet hook is used instead of knitting needles. *wikipedia

You see my friends, Crocheting is cool!
Mum picked up some yarn, a crochet pattern book, and a crochet hook from an op-shop on Saturday, in an attempt to teach me how to crochet.
My attempts however, are somewhat dire, when you see this mess below
