I started my own personal crochet renaissance last fall when I taught dd's Girl Scout Troop to crochet...I hadn't crocheted for ages! After this adventure I got a copy of Nicky Epstein's book on crocheting for Barbie (at least, I think it's by N.E....maybe not). Lots of fun. I think I learned to crochet around age 6, which was over 30 years ago. I was designing my own Barbie clothes back then.
There was a discussion on Groovy Crochet on here awhile back, so there must be some more crocheters out there who haven't responded yet.
