So let’s see…what would you like to know about me….
Well, for starters, my mom is the one who got me started in needle crafts, and I still look to her for help when I have questions. She taught me knitting when I was very young, and then a few years later she taught me to crochet. As a kid, I found crochet easier and faster, so I stuck with that and over time I forgot pretty much everything I knew about knitting. I started re-learning it all in 2013, and was a little knitting obsessed for a while. In 2014 I shifted back to crochet and started designing and writing patterns, which I’ve found out I absolutely love!
I’ve also done my fair share of other hook and needle crafts such as cross stitch / embroidery, needlepoint, rug hooking, etc. These days though, it’s mostly knitting or crochet. I do the other stuff once in a while, but not often. The one needle craft I absolutely can’t do is any form of sewing (including quilting). I’ve bought the machines, read the books, tried the patterns, watched the videos, taken the classes…it’s no use…but that’s ok, I have more than enough projects to keep me busy without adding sewing to the list!
Taking a break from hooks and needles, my other crafty passion is scrapbooking. I’ve also tried my hand at quilling, though I never made it past the basics. That’s about it for now, though I’m sure there will be more cool crafts to pick up (and blog about!) along the way.
