Crochet Quote

“I’m normally a process crocheter-I enjoy the act of making a thing more than I enjoy the finished thing itself. But in this case-I want to be wearing this sweater already! Hurry up, hands! But I’m in luck, as the process itself is already very rewarding.” – Sarah Read writing about Daniala Nii’s Alpine Cardi Crochet Wrap from Interweave Crochet Fall 2014

crochet red hats
