Does everyone think people who crochet are little old cat ladies?

I don’t understand why I am so surprised that not everyone loves crochet as much as I do. Silly people, don’t they know it is a great, relaxing and portable hobby?

  • Crocheting while watching a movie keeps my hands so busy I don’t have time for snacking! So it’s a great help in weight loss, right?!
  • Need something to do while at the doctor’s office? Pull out your granny squares or scarf or similar small project…you know there’s never decent reading material there. All the good recipes have already been pulled out.
  • There’s nothing better than curling up in a nice crocheted afghan on a cold, blustery day reading a book…or better yet…crocheting something else!
  • You can’t find safer toys for little ones than ones you’ve made yourself!

I suppose I could go on and on but I’d be preaching to the choir I’m sure.  It just surprises me that people aren’t more interested in learning a new skill or hobby. They seem to think it’s going to make them a little old cat lady I guess. How little they know.

So from one little old cat lady to another….off to start another project!
