Crochet me a river
Today's Daily Breeze has a feature story on Mary Geiser, an 88-year-old Torrance crochet fiend. In two years, Mary has crocheted more than 900 caps for orphans, cancer patients, the homeless and US troops in chilly places like Afghanistan.
But crocheting, of course, isn't just for grannies anymore. Crocheting, knitting and other crafty pursuits have been reclaimed by the young and rebellious and are all over the blogsphere. We're particularly charmed by Crazy Aunt Purl, who despite being a divorcée with cats who makes things out of yarn is also a cool chick who lives in Van Nuys. Her scruffy and fuzzy Paris scarf almost makes us wish winter was coming back soon.
