I enjoy knitting too much to want to knit fast. I like seeing the project develop, however, I also love the feel of the yarn through my fingers. Last week I was watching a show on HGTV. Was at a friend's house so have no idea what the program was because I don't get HGTV at home. Anyway, on this show they were helping people to redecorate their living spaces. There was a 30 something woman who was living in a small apartment and trying to make her living room to double as an office. They came in and talked to her about what she was trying to achieve and what she wanted as the focal point of the room. She had an afghan her grandmother had made her as a child. That would be the focal point. Now to the point of my story, there is a designer who crochets everything. This is where I walked in on the show so I didn't get the name of the designer, however when they entered her apartment everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) was covered in crochet. She was being asked to design a cover for a chair that the afghan would lay on. This was one of those over-sized chairs. They asked her how long it would take and she said 2-3 days. The guy who was interviewing her asked how she could crochet so fast and she asked him if he wanted to learn. She then handed her the work and let him work several stitches. While he was still holding the work he made the comment to his camera man that he could take over the interview because he was going to take up crocheting. Loved it.
