~I don't generally use Red Heart because I don't care for the texture. However, I also do know that it's good for some things and has many good qualities (wears like iron, is great for making toys, and has a great selection of colors, etc.) To each his or her own, I say!
~It drives me nuts when people put down other people's work in a mean way. Not just "knitting vs. crocheting" but fiber snobs, and project snobs. We have enough people who don't understand our craft without us turning on each other. While I don't necessarily like tp cozies, I know that someone worked hard to create one because they had a vision, and I appreciate that.
~It drives me nuts when people call it a crochet needle. I know it's referred to as a needle sometimes, but for pete's sake, it's a crochet HOOK!!
~I don't like crocheting in public because I hate it when people stare, or worse, pretend not to stare! I'm a NYer, and I don't generally welcome conversation from complete strangers on the subway. Sorry, but I'd rather read a book and save my crochet for an environment where I feel safe and comfortable.
~Another pet peeve is when people say they like to crochet dishclothes. Why would anyone want to dress a dish? It's dishcloths.
That's all that comes to mind. Incidentally, I don't have a dishwasher. Not everyone does! But I also think crocheted dishcloths are too thick. I prefer knitted. Go figure!
