There is debate over exactly when the art of crocheting started, but the first written description of the process was in the 1812 book The Memoirs of a Highland Lady by Elizabeth Grant. The process of crocheting involves a single needle with a hook on the end and is similar to knitting in the creation of fabrics by pulling loops of threads through other loops.

But a description of the technique fails to describe the art that results from that process. Some of the most beautiful lace is created using crochet methods and whether you know anything about crocheting, it is easy to recognize the results. Crocheted items can be as simple as a coaster or as complex as a jackets or shawls. But each example is a individual work of art.

And now, AliceCreations.com brings you the opportunity to have your very own family name, company name or favorite team name fashioned into it’s own work of art. Family names make especially good gifts for weddings, birthdays or anniversaries. Company names can be crocheted to add a touch of class to a waiting area or public place. Favorite team names can add a bit of taste to even the most modern rec-room.

Giving a gift of a crocheted name to someone will remind them of other family heirlooms that have been passed down over the years in their family and when framed they will last for generations.
