You have to pull the end of the yarn and unravel the story behind the crochet." ― OLEK in London

  • “I also have my crochet. It dates from when I began to think. Stitch on stitch forming a whole without a whole … A cloth, and I don’t know if it’s for a garment or for nothing. A soul, and I don’t know if it’s for feeling or living. What”
    ― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
  • “I told her that crochet has helped me throughout my entire career by giving my brain and my hands something to do other than worrying about what people might be saying. And that was way better for me than mindlessly looking at my phone and the noise of social media (message boards on steroids).” ― Sutton Foster, Hooked: How Crafting Saved My Life
  • “Then, seeming to feel it was expected of her, she laid down her crochet, and delivered a gentle old-maidish dissertation on murder.”
    ― Agatha Christie, The Moving Finger

    ― Nancy Warren, Crochet and Cauldrons
  • “Sometimes I wish that I hadn't learned how to crochet," I say, and Alice laughs. Obviously she thinks I'm joking, which is maybe for the best.” ― David Nicholls, Starter for Ten
  • “She was also mad. Loopy as a crochet convention.” ― Jim Butcher, Summer Knight
  • “The last time I was on a cruise it was through the Greek islands with Justin, and I was positively glowing with love and post-sex hormones. Now, huddled in a corner with three Aldi bags of knitting needles, crochet hooks and wool, accompanied by an ex-hippy and a sardine sandwich, I can no longer deny the fact that my life has taken a turn for the worse.” ― Beth O'Leary, The Flatshare
  • “One hobby I did not pick up was crocheting, an obsession among prisoners throughout the system. Some of the handiwork was impressive. The inmate who ran the laundry was a surly rural white woman named Nancy whose dislike for anyone but “northerners” was hardly a secret. Her personality left a lot to be desired, but she was a remarkable crochet artist. One day in C Dorm I happened upon Nancy standing with my neighbor Allie B. and mopey Sally, all howling with laughter. “What?” I asked, innocently. “Show her, Nancy!” giggled Allie. Nancy opened her hand. Perched there in her palm was an astonishingly lifelike crochet penis. Average in size, it was erect, fashioned of pink cotton yarn, with balls and a smattering of brown cotton pubic hair, and a squirt of white yarn ejaculate at the tip.” ― Piper Kerman, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison
  • “It wasn’t just in the comfort of my crochet corner that color blossomed. I began to notice color in other places again. I noticed the tone of a friend’s skin color because I wanted to make her a scarf and wanted to choose colors that would flatter her. I noticed the colors in the skirt of a passerby because I liked the pattern and wanted to create something similar. Before I knew it I was noticing the blue in the sky, the blue in my boyfriend’s eyes, in a way that I simply hadn’t noticed in a very, very long time.” ― Kathryn Vercillo, Crochet Saved My Life
  • “A big stash allows me to have a fluid sense of creativity - a looseness that is very much like playing. It opens me up, unlocks things. The creative bit takes all the other pieces - the possibility, the abundance, the connections, and the actual work of making yarn - bundles them, and explodes like a glitter bomb. It gets everywhere, it makes me smile, and a I can't escape it.

    My stash is the spark. Even if I haven't spun for days or weeks, even when I'm feeling dull-witted or anti-craft, I still spend time with my stash. It pulls on doors that have been locked, slides under the crack and clicks them open from the inside. After an hour tossing my fibers around, I am revitalized for making yarn, yes, but for things well beyond that, too. My stash feels like an extension of me that I sometimes forget about: the part that plays, that connects things that don't seem to go, that experiments and makes things.” ― Clara Parkes, A Stash of One's Own: Knitters on Loving, Living with, and Letting go of Yarn
  • “I could feel the heat rising in my cheeks. 'We spent one night together.'
    'You had sex then?'
    'No we crocheted a quilt.' I cocked my head to side and gave him my nastiest glare." Lorelei Preston to Agent Brody-The Wild Hunt” ― Ashley Jeffery, The Wild Hunt
