Silver Linings

Atypical Crochet

Crochet, one of the world's earliest and most popular craft.  History dates it way back before the 1800s.   With a single hook, a fabric is created from threads of fiber.  Scarves, mittens, , afghans and doilies are its common end-products.   

Young designers today have appropriated their modern take on this ever evolving craft.  The medium no longer remains restricted to traditional yarns.  The outcome are not just the usual fiber accessories.  

Welcome to the 21st century crochet - where the hook does more than 'throws'.  We're seeing crochet's silver lining even brighter.  

In the meantime, let me have those silver earrings.
