Just a little story from my childhood about a nice older lady in the park.
Mary Cassatt - Lydia Crocheting in the Garden at Marly, 1880
I must've been elementary school aged when I was watching an older lady crochet from afar. She noticed me and called me over.
She handed me a hook and yarn and taught me how to single crochet.
I was hooked immediately!
She gave me a set of starter hooks (which I still have and use today) and yarn and that's how my crochet journey began!
I thank that unknown woman for her kindness as crocheting is my favorite thing to do!
