One of my favorite items was a heavy, warm crocheted wool sweater made by my grandmother. It was tough, warm, and outlasted me, eventually needing to be handed down to younger siblings, sigh! There will never be another like it.
Why do we say that knitting or crocheting is a useful homesteading skill? Does it really save you money, make money, or help out on the homestead?
That depends on who you talk to and how you do it.
