if you crochet, you should join. : )

“Crochetlist (also known as CL) is… a very active, unique group of over 2000 crocheters.

Crochetlist members live in many different countries all over the world and are of all ages, including kids, tweens, teens, young adults, and adults young at heart. 🙂

Discussions on Crochetlist include anything and everything about crochet and other crafts (such as knitting, quilting, rubber stamping, scrapbooking, sewing, etc.). CL members also enjoy getting to know each other through group posts, individual emails, IRC chats, and in-person meetings.

Members also participate in interesting activities such as our Crochet-A-Thon (CLCAT) charity challenges on IRC (internet relay chat) in #crochet chat — For more information about CLCAT:
