[crochet] it's a boy's thing

Kyle says: "Yo, crochet is go!"

I was looking for the word croquet, found crochet instead and thought what the heck - let's go with it. I used to crochet at school when I was eleven and I once won the best … no, hold on … that was embroidery.

Anyway, crocheting is for boys. That's the thing I was trying to say. Check out the neat little tent Jeffrey made [centre right]. You see, rather than chasing women and playing ball, this is what you could be doing, guys. And women will admire you for it and look - you have the tent at the ready.

As Gwen says:

Crochet is a metaphor for many pleasing things in their lives and they find the process to be as important as the product and use it to express emotions and ideas.

Now, that crochet pattern I promised you boyz is here [see photo below of the finished skorts for your girlfriend]. But be careful - there had to be some changes. As Sue says:

I have changed where it says "*1sc, 1dc* to end of row" and replaced it with "Seed st (1sc, 1dc) to end of row", as everyone will know from the instructions that Seed St means to make a sc in the dc of the previous row and a dc in the sc on the previous row.

Hope that's clear.

Well of course the first knitters [as I am given to understand] were men, and the women gathered the wool, washed, dyed, spun.......

But crochet is so passé James. Please don't encourage its return.
