Crochet is a wonderful hobby. It is only as expensive as you want it to be - hooks are cheap and you can splurge on fancy yarn, or not, depending on what you want to make. You can easily take it with you and work on it during odd moments. I have crocheted by the pool on vacation, in trains and airplanes on my way to mundane and exotic locations, in board meetings, waiting to be called for jury duty, and sitting on a bench in the park, among other locations.Fancy yarn stock Manufacturers

You can make practical things like afghans as housewarming presents, or completely impractical stuff, like this.

Yes, it’s a crochet peplum. I designed it to go with a multi-layered black chiffon miniskirt. It’s hard to see in the photo, but it has tiny beads all along the bottom edge.

Or, if you have a little girl in the family who likes fun things, you can do something like this ruffled, multi-colored scarf.
