yesterday morning I went to my
next-step-up-from-beginners Crochet Class
with Ali Campbell which was great fun-
we began on little Christmas stockings,
and if I can master the seasonal version
I might have a go at making
some human size crocheted socks.
I took Ali a present of this little antique bone
crochet hook with a different size hook
at each end and she said it was called a "crook"
Halfway through the stocking heel
I suddenly realised-
"by hook or by crook. . ."
Do you think that's where
the saying comes from?
