But Foolery ain’t got nothing on your crafty arse. When Tom Hookery and I get together, it is by far complete and utter craft maddness I tells ya. Craft. Mad. Ness.

Shhh! Look over there! Oh yes, the majestic Hookopotamus. Quietly as we observe the rare creature in the wild as it, yes ladies and gentlehooks, is crocheting. This is miraculous and, oh look how crafty she is. We’ll try to not to disturb this specimen while in the act of hooking. Please make sure to put away all knitting needle as she will charge very aggressively.

Happy Birthday Nas! You have no idea the impact you have made on the crochet community. One can be powerful and make change one hook at a time.

WHAT I STAND FOR SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND”
I added the One Mic to DA JAMZ! page and check out the other tunes on the Hooker soundtrack.

This photo was taken some time in the wee hours of the morn and as far as this Hooker is concerned it is International Crochet (Hooker) Week!

So it may be 1p, but I just woke up. International Crochet (Hooker) Day was wild around here if you know what I mean. We hooked. Hard.

We’ve been waiting for this day for some time now. Today is our day. On International Crochet Day we raise a hook high in the air and proclaim with conviction, “My name is [insert name here]. I am a hooker!” Legit. Today at the Obey Crochet headquarters we celebrate, shake it, eat ourselves into a coma, and drank. AND we crochet, preferably before the gluttonous merriment in case we fall asleep afterward. Watch out for another post later in the day (wink, wink).
So why do you love this fine craft of crochet with such fervor? Why would you rather be hookin’?

He does this every time we craft. He really loves crochet. Really. I can’t take him any where. This is just out of control. Please don’t give him sugar. Please.

Today, I vent, so if you choose to read some non-whining, go somwhere else. If you tend to be bitter or that friend who instigates and encourages anger, read on and comment too. I really believe in crochet, I do. I have lots of hobbies and I love craft but never have I met a people who are so second place. I am talking to you fellow hooker. Again and again and yes, you guessed it, today while at the craft store I shop at almost every day, someone looks over,
“Oh, my! So much yarn! What are you making?”
“A monster. One with big feet I think. Really excited.”
“I’ve always wanted to learn to knit!”
“Oh, I don’t knit. I crochet.”
“It uses a hook instead of knitting needles to craft yarn into all sorts of things.”
“I’ve never heard of that. Could you teach someone to knit?”
“I don’t knit.”
“Oh not at all. Okay. Do they have those hooks here?”
“Yes. Crochet hooks are at all the craft stores. They are right over there.”
“Oh wow, very interesting. Crochet.”
“You should try it. I learned from YouTube.”
“I really want to learn to knit first I think. When are you going to learn knitting?”
[Insert silence here.]
“Here have a button. It’s a hooker thing.”
Maybe I am over reacting just because I have had that conversation about 1,000 times. No I don’t have any knitting plans and that is just fine. I apologize on behalf of all the blank stares you have gotten and all the ones you will receive, but stay strong. We are all crafted equally. One day they will know, one day they will all know.

HOOKERS RULE!
