crocheting in southeast asia
Created By: B Benni

Only two weeks ago, i returned from a monthlong trip to southeast asia. During the final week of my trip, this interesting incidence happened to me:

While walking through the neighborhood lanes in Lamai Beach, a popular destination in Koh Samui, Thailand, i noticed a woman, probably around my age (30)sitting in front of her shop at a table crocheting what looked like a bedspread or tablecloth out of thread that was a beautiful golden-ochre-earthy color. i became very excited, since i am the only one of my friends who enjoys fiber-crafting. i approached the woman and told her that her work was very beautiful and that i myself was a fellow crocheter. i showed her my current work which, as usual, i had with me in a plastic shopping bag. she returned my excitement. i asked her if there was a shop nearby that sold yarn, etc. and she told me that she would take me there the next day. i went back the next day, and surely enough, she was there. she walked my friends and me to the shop, which was about five minutes away. i bought some yarn and a few crochet books. they are all in Thai, but i think i'll be able to figure out the diagrams.

It's nice to know that two complete strangers from across the world can make a connection over something. this experience has made me realize how universal our craft really is.
