It seems to me that in the craft hierachy crochet has a pretty bad name for poor taste, craptastic offerings.
Now given how many cute crochet tops/ shrugs/ were around the last two summers in the stores, I was wondering why this perception lingers. I mean, maybe it's just me but these first two tops are pretty cute, right? They're flattering, they're not garish. I am right aren't I?
Is it just that we are all still doing a style cringe remembering the string-with-holes rainbow offerings from the 70s?
I don't know what's worse ... that someone designed and made these horrors or that someone else feels that there is a commercial market for the patterns.
I'm going to have a lie down now. I feel strangely ill.
