i'm a known crocheter at work. i was joking with my curator one day that i should crochet him a bow tie to wear (he sports bow ties on a regular basis - it's his thing). when i brought it up, it was sort of challenged to me to do this. with (i think) a tiny implication that i might not be able to actually crochet a proper, sturdy bow tie. so, i took it as a challenge, and i certainly showed them! at a happy hour event i coordinated at the museum, i made my curator wear the bow tie! you can see it below. not too bad, if i do say so myself!
