What is NATCROMO?

March is "National Crochet Month", I never knew this until I joined this lovely community of Crocheters on Ravelry. And in keeping with the world of acronyms I will remember this one for sure! So many artists have entered this medium that was once reserved for the retired and our Grandmother's making new things for the home and their new grandchildren. We've gone from layettes of blankets, bibs, booties, runners, doilies and dolls to gorgeous clothing and something called Amigurumi; a fun crochet project making little things and whimsical animals, that aside the saying "You've come a long way Baby" couldn't be more appropriate for the Yarn industry. Thank you to whom ever created NATCROMO and long may you wave!
