I first learned to crochet from the best knitter/crocheter (I better not call her a ‘hooker’) I know – my Mam (that’s Irish for ‘Mum’ or ‘Mom’ btw). She was an actual Pro: for pocket-money, she used to knit/crochet the display items in our local yarn store. Mam even crocheted my communion dress – I just HAVE TO dig out a photo of that dress – her wonderful work needs to be appreciated (even after 40-odd years) – watch this space.
