  • My Mom put a hook in my hand when I was 5 and I was "hooked" LOL. I now have 4 grown children and one still at home, and they all know that somewhere under the Christmas tree they each have something that Mom made. My favorite to make are afghans with pictures or personalization on them, but I also make sweaters, my daughter will be sporting a new one I made for her this fall, coasters, scarves, placemats, dog sweaters, (I learned to do those when I got my chihuahua) and lots of other stuff.

  • I do. I taught myself in 2006 after teaching myself to knit the year before. Right now I have like 10 projects going (I have ADD and I have to rotate projects to actually finish them, lol). They are split between knit and crochet projects. My favorite crochet one right now is a hexagon afghan I'm making using all the worsted weight yarns in my stash. It's very colorful and pretty and warm. It's about half done. It's about lap size now so even though it has ends hanging out I use it as a throw. When it's done it will fit my twin size bed.
    I mostly make afghans and amigurumi toys for the kids.

  • I LOVE IT! I first taught myself the slip stitch, and did it that way, then I decided to start trying to make money with it on etsy, so i taught myself by reading the book the single, double, half double and triple (Treble) stitches. I LOVE the triples. they're fun to do! it's easy to figure out how to do it, especially if you can get youtube videos to watch. I did that too especially trying to figure out the doubles and triples.
