I have recently read that there is something called the boyfriend curse for knitters and that most knitters believe that the quickest way to have a relationship end is to knit something for their boyfriend.  Has anyone heard of, or had experience with, something like that when it comes to crocheting for a boyfriend?  (I just may be a tad superstitious...) Stories or comments please.

I've crocheted a ton of beanies for my husband--who is still my husband.  That count?

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

I thought it only applied to sweaters! 

I have crocheted small things for my other half, like iPod cozies and coasters, but we are getting married in three days so hopefully that means the curse hasn't taken effect.

Hadn't heard it specifically for crocheters, but I think it's bunk no matter what craft you're doing. 

I think the correlation is that the crafter has already dated someone for a while when the project begins.  The project itself takes time, too.  Over the course of that time, the relationship just runs out of steam because the relationship has been sufficiently long enough such that the initial attraction phase is over, the "deal breaker" issues come out, people don't feel the same, whatever.  It would likely happen even if neither person were crafty.

FTR, I crocheted a scarf for my boyfriend a few years ago.  He is now my husband.
