These are the ones that came to mind. I might have heard some and not remember but I think most are originals. Still, they are so common, I'm sure others have thought of them before me.

Great Balls of Yarn

The Hook Nook

Chains and Loops

Have Ewe Any Wool?

Granny's Square

Magical Stash

Snips, Shells & Yarn Tails

Frog Tales

Rip-It, Rip-It!

Sheepish Grin Inn

Slipped Stitches

Ewe-nique Crochet

Keeping Ewe In Stitches

Knit Knack, Paddywhack (It's hard not to throw a couple in for knitting -- knit just works so much easier!)

One Stitch at a Time

Ball and Chains

The Winding Yarn

Crochet Sorbet

It's a Crewel World (I know Crewel work is not the same but had to throw it in)

None of the following are originals -- you've probably heard them all:

darski I agree, think it is a cultural thing,

 

how about "by hook or by crook"

 

I also like the "I crochet so I dont kill people"

 

my other saying is "crochet is my yoga"

Thank you for accepting my apology and for letting my "edited post" be allowed. I was out of line, but I won't let it happen again.

"I just want to crochet beautiful things even if nobody cares!"

"I crochet because I am smarter than you"

"Just say you love it and shut up!"

My favorite crochet term is Frogging.  Been crocheting for years but only recently heard this term.  Love the explanation I found explain that the term came from rip-it, rip-it, the sound a frog makes.

I also like the term yarn barf, for those clumps of tangled yarn that pull out from the center of the skein, or the mess you get when you try to find the end, hidden in the center of the skein.

Those annoying clumps of fiber that make the yarn lumpy, or the joins that you find in the middle of a skein, I call boogers.'

When my cat decides that my WIP is the purrfect place to take a nap, I say my project has been kitnapped.

I like all the crochet phrases in this thread!  And--as I mentioned before--we named our crochet club "Froggers Crochet"!  We really get a lot of comments about that name!

Oh!  By the way--welcome to Crochetville!!
