So I have started fooling around with crochet, and right now I am making an extremely experimental scarf. It is made with very fine wool lace yarn (?) that I found in a thrift store and a large crochet hook. So basically it is a very light and fine and airy product. I am not pulling it tight, so it is very very loose and loopy. That is not a very good description, but my question is, is there any name for what I am doing? I guess this is silly because there is no real reason for me to know what it is (if it is indeed special) other then to be able to explain what I am doing to people without so many words. Any input would be helpful. Smiley

haha I know what you mean and as far as I know, there is no name for it.  It's just using a larger gauge hook than your yarn calls for.  Hope that helps.

To explain it to quickly to people who ask just tell them your crocheting a lacey scarf.  Simple and to the point without going into many details. Grin

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
