For those of us who CIP (crochet-in-public), this is probably familiar:
How many times has a person come up to you and asked "What are you knitting?"
After the first few times I tried to explain what the differences between knitting and crochet were, I just kind of gave up. "A hat. I am making a hat."
I know these people have the best of intentions, and it's nice to share your craft with other people, but just once I would like someone to complement me on my crochet.
