Making Croshame a Family Affair
My husband Chuck is a wildly talented individual who enjoys a slew of artistic hobbies: drawing, painting, sculpture, animation, woodworking, photography… yeah, he pretty much does it all.
So it came as a bit of surprise when, as I watched Kristin Omdahl‘s Crochet Corner segment on Knitting Daily one morning, Chuck started asking me to explain what she was doing. Whuuuuhhh… REALLY? Chuck has seen me crocheting for at least 4 hours almost every day for the last three years, but for some reason — maybe it was Kristin’s perky dimples or those professionally smooth KS Inc. close-up shots — something captured his attention this time around and he expressed a sincere interest in learning to crochet.
Without me forcing it on him!
I could just imagine Kristin’s reaction…
Seizing on Chuck’s enthusiasm, I immediately cleared some room on the couch and whipped out my extra hooks and surplus yarn. After a few demos, soothing words, handholding, and the shocking revelation my husband has the opposite hook hold I do, by early evening I was staring from across the room at the surreal sight of Chuck crocheting.
So now it isn’t so weird anymore, and we have an entire stack of crocheted hats that are fun for the whole family.
