I have been reading the essays in Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot Crochet Quote: Granny

“Every time crocheting gets labeled cool or trendy, someone somewhere, who I am sure thinks that he or she is being very clever and original, says, ‘This is not your grandmother’s crochet!’ Like that’s a good thing. One of the things I like about crochet is that my mother did it, and my grandmother probably did, too. I personally don’t want to disengage from Granny but to take her work and move forward from it.”

What do you think of the oft-heart statement “it’s not your grandma’s crochet”?
