What is Crochet?

When people saw me crocheting, they often asking what was I doing. I told them that this is called crocheting. Their usual comment is always: Ahhh! My grandmother used to do that to make doily.

Recently I read an article about crochet:

"Crochet is that skimpy little high-fashion dress prancing down the runway at a designer show. It's a warm hat and scarf in bright colors worn on a gray winter day or a soft, cuddly teddy bear clutched in a crying child's arms.

Crochet is a glittery shawl thrown over a shoulder to accent a little black cocktail dress or a sleek little evening purse encrusted with beads. Crochet is a fluffy blanket that welcomes a new baby to the world or a pair of socks with a zingy heel treatment for a teenager to wear with clogs. It's a Christmas stocking, a gift from one generation to another.

Crochet is magically creating something from nothing. It's the love one pair of hands gives to another

I think I am going to use that to explain about crochet the next time people ask me.
