Well at least in the last 40 years .. When I was in my teens crotchet was very popular and I was never without something to do then later when I married I made lots of pretty lacy crotchet mats for my home (very fashionable back then), and when my children were born there were little crotchet jackets and for my daughter lots of lovely little dresses and tops. However its years now since I last had a go, but my craft room needed a boost. I have lots and lots of left over wool from the days when I used to knit and so decided that they would make a nice crotched throw for the dull black sofa. My tension leaves a lot to be desired and there are some mistakes in there that a blind man would love to see (but the rest of you may not), so pleased do not look to closely, as I now present the new and cheery sofa right here in my craft room.
Despite the flaws I love it, but had I backtracked each time I found one, it would have been in the bin and never made it to the craft room. I do not have the patience nowaday’s, and have reached the conclusion, that life is never going to be 100 % perfect, so get on and love it the way it is.
Hugs to all and thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings
