Hi Roberta,

So interesting to read about how weavers and knitters approach knots. I've been dipping in and out of The Alden Amos Big Book of Handspinning (mainly because I don't have the attention span to read from beginning to end), and he also discusses how knots function in weaving, knitting and crocheting. The one passage that struck me was his point about how each crochet stitch is essentially a three-dimensional knot: "Each stitch acts as a hard, focused point of wear, with little ability to move out of harm's way" (246).



Marie, for some reason the Alden always intimidated me -- what an interesting thing to say about crochet. Now I am going to have to look through it :D
