I started to crochet when I was about 13, When I went abroad to study I learned how to knit, that was about when I was 19. I've been knitting ever since. When I was working a friend of mine told me that she knits and spins, so thats where that came from. my Grandma, bless her was a huge knitter and crocher, so was my other grandma. My mom even made our flwoer girl dresses when we were very little. So I have crafty people everywhere.
