I Love to crochet! One of my last duty stations in the Air Force was Turkey. Most yarns are made there, so I was in crochet heaven! They have some lovely traditions, and believe that a woman who can't crochet will never get a husband. LOL. They were absolutely delightful to work with.
I suffered an injury that stiffened up my ring finger and pinky on my hand. Crochet helped me with dexterity, and my hand is almost as good as new. :D It's awesome to see so many crocheters. I hope we get this thread going again!
