Crochet Needles and Knitting Hooks

You know what has "gotten my goat" lately?  People who refer to crochet hooks as "crochet needles" without giving it a second thought.   These people who have been around me for Lord knows how long and have seen me doing it all the time, still have the nerve to use "needle" with crochet.  Sigh. 

Well, got that off my chest.  See you all later.
