Jean Leinhauser brought up an interesting topic. What to call a group of crocheters...
She suggested:
A cluster of crocheters?
A skein of crocheters?
A shell of crocheters?
I'm going to keep track of this...I like making lists of things anyway, so why not!

Barb (Busha) suggested:
A clutch of crocheters

Perry suggested:
A knot of crocheters.
A frog of crocheters.
A harem of hookers. :)

Elaine in Pensacola suggested:
A cluck of crocheters

PattiJo suggested:
A bundle of croakers
She explains it: "...the "bundle" part refers
to balls or skeins of yarn...and Crokers? a combo of Crocheters and

Marti suggested:
How about a WIP of crocheters! After all, we are all WIP's, aren't we? (smile!)

Arianna suggested:
Happy Hookers

Kathie added her 2 cents:

Laura came up with this::
a crush of crocheters

According to Roget's Thesaurus, "crush" is synonymous with gaggle, flock, herd, etc.

Pinka thought this was a good one:
CAS of crocheters

CAS = Crocheter Acquisition Syndrom

because we all know that each of us has a case of YAS,
TAS, PAS, HAS or whatever else has to do with crchet.
:-) :-) Not everyone admits it, but we all know the
truth. :-)

Judy thought this was appropriate:
How about a chain of crocheters? Each link of a chain makes a firm foundation of friends.

PattiJo cracked herself (and me too) with this one:
"A Crush of Cro-Ribbiters"

Ann in Phx had this to offer:
A craft of crocheters?
A croft of crocheters?
A bobble of crocheters?
(I'm partial to "cluster" of crocheters.)

Debbie offered:
A hook of crocheters

Narelle in Australia offered:
A company of crocheters

Pattianne came up with:
My own...
a flock of fiber nuts
a tangle of hookr's
a Skein of Hookr's
