I really like to crochet with thread.

That is lovely, Martha!


I have never had the patience to work with the finer crochet thread rather than yarn, except for a few snowflakes and other small projects. It seems to work up so much slower! Also I find the lack of stretch in it hard to get used to. It has a whole different feel than crocheting with yarn.

Thanks, Becky.


For me, if I want to do a quick project I usually do something with thread...plus it's usually small enough I can pack it up and take it with me for something to do, especially if I waiting for an appt.
