Actually, now *Mistress* (hmmm, actually i think she is going by
"Dame") Christian and i agree about crochet.

This FAQ is also hosted in my e-mail list, HistoricKnit, on Yahoogroups.

Oh! Then I'm confused by your original statement. Or was this meant  
as satire and I missed that?

As you can see, the crochet-FAQ file is several years old. If it has  
been updated or if anyone has written any articles on this or simply  
has more material to add, I'd love to have it. Unless I have some  
info stashed in some other textiles file, I don't have any other info  
on this.

I have made a note and will update Dame Cristian's title in the file  
and the filelist, when I get a chance.
