Most people in countries like The US, UK dare Crocheting in Public. We in India, however, do not do this often. We feel shy because people start looking at us. But we do not think that they are looking because they are inquisitive, they want to know more about what we are doing. Though we have seen many ladies in the trains doing this, it has not become a trend as it is in the US. So let us discuss today how and why we should start crocheting in public, what are the benefits and how we always have a feel good factor that comes with it.
