  • I just recently took up crocheting. I'd kind of learned when I was younger but never stuck with it, recently I re-taught myself using youtube videos, lol. I've only done a couple of projects, a couple of sponges in red and black, and I'm working on a pair of shorties (a diaper cover that's basically a water resistant pair of shorts) in camo right now =)

  • I do but I can't do afghans, scarves, anything like that - I can do a certain kind of doily, and I mainly crochet around baby blankets (special ones) - my grandma taught me but not how to read a pattern or anything, or any stitch names, so anything I do is just off the top of my head!

  • I've made afghans for my 3 kids and my 7 Gr-Kids. I use different colors so they aren't the same. The last gr-dd was yellow and gr pale colors, before her was a peachy color and beige. My Gr-son was a blue and purple. I'd just go to the store and pick out different colors I liked together that were different.

  • No. I don't! My DH's aunt died who I think was the best at it.. After she died. My DD learned how!! She's really Good at it! She makes blankets in the colors people ask for. Like so far she made one for boys 2 & 5.She made one for her Baby newborn niece. And one each for her in laws 75th Birthdays. And they got blankets in their favorite requested colors! She made us a Huge one for our 30th Wedding Anniversary on the 30th. She also did do alot of crocheting in the Chemo room with me! Many liked to watch her crochet to get their mind off icky Chemo. Best of luck with all of your designs and creations! Keep it up! I envy anyone that can do that!
