In every art form, there's a story and Irish Crochet is one that really inspires me. According to wikipedia, It is a type of crochet lace that has its origin in the famine years of the 19th century in Ireland. Charity group sought to revive the economy by teaching crochet lace technique at no charge to anyone willing to learn.
I'm still trying to learn this crochet art and its not easy but its addictive at the same time. I still have to practice an even tension. These are my baby steps so far..
