Happy Clappy Crochet

Celebrating Crochet with a Positive Spin

Quick Monday Smile

on March 7, 2016

My 40 hr a week “pays the rent and bills” job is working for the family business, which means I’m spending several hours a day working with my dad.

Today my dad asked me “What is it you do? Do you knit or crochet?” When I said I crochet, he brought over a mail-order magazine and asked if I thought this would be a good book. He was pointing to a picture of The Crochet Stitch Bible by Betty Barnden. I smiled and said that I not only owned the book, but it was one of my go-to stitch dictionaries.

“Oh,” he said, then went back over to his desk.

“Why did you ask?”

“Because if you didn’t have it, I was going to get it for you.”

 

That little comment still brings happy tears to my eyes. The encouragement I receive from my parents and my sisters means so much. I hope you have someone out there who supports your love of crafting!
