I'm not sure if crocheting is actually a hobby or not, but I enjoy it. It is also practical, especially for Christmas and birthday presents, and warm afghans on a cool winter night while watching TV. I was just wondering if anyone had any pattern instructions, of a favorite crocheted item, they would like to share. I am crocheting sets of doilies to give for Christmas at the present time... I am looking for new patterns and the pattern books are VERY expensive now!
