“She’s been like the Tiger Woods of crocheting”

“She’s been like the Tiger Woods of crocheting”   Oh, I don't know about that.

That quote is from another article highlighting the poncho Martha wore on the day of her release.  It references about crocheters coming out of the closet because they want one too.

While it IS true that there has been much emphasis on crochet since her release, the crochet frenzy has been going on for a number of years, having really heated up for the past few.  It's much like placing a pot of water on the stove to boil and never getting the credit that's due.  Take the individual(s) who got the pot out, filled it with water, put it on the stove and turned the heat on.  Then push them to the side so that someone else can innocently walk by the stove, look at the pot, and then declare the water boiling.  The "success" for the boiling water is then given to that person totally ignoring the other person's actions. 

Based on this, I don't think it's fair to all of those people who have worked so hard to bring crochet to the forefront not to be thanked too.  So today, my journal entry is dedicated to them, and all the hard work they've done to bring crochet to the stove, light it's fire, and wait for that pass-byer to declare (somehow) that it's at it's boiling point.   Thank You!!!!

     Thank You for the growing trend to find great Crochet on the Internet.

     Thank You for helping yarn shops see they need to offer Crochet Classes.

     Thank You for helping the yarn/thread manufacturers see that Crocheters love yummy fibers too.

     Thank You for bringing new books/projects to light -- the inspiration they offer is awesome.

     Thank You for showing how beautiful crochet looks as the latest "must haves" in fashion.
