New York, New Yo...
We see a lot of people crocheting and knitting on the subway in New York City on winter days. This week we’re delving into the basics of crochet. How many of our members crochet? Knit? If you’re new to crochet, David, our Coordinator, Social Media and Member Service extraordinaire, has created a simple tutorial which will boost you from novice to pro in no time. We think it sounds so fun to cozy up and learn a new technique, and with crochet, you can bring your projects anywhere! Modeled by David’s Mother… how sweet!
