Even the people who don't knit and crochet are interested in seeing people do it. I am a participating artist in Portland Open Studios, a tour of artists' workplaces every Oct, at which I crochet with wire. The first time I did it I thought who would want to watch me crochet, especially when people could go to other studios and see glass blowers, welders or something else dramatic. But they did come and were fascinated and wanted to try it This year we have 3 artists (out of 100) who crochet or knit artworks. All three of us use unusual materials. Two of us use wire and the other uses recycled plastic bags.
I love the rhythm of crochet. My favorite days are when I can crochet all day and listen OPB.
