My mother taught me to knit, crochet and sew. The only thing that didn't take was knitting. Hence, I'm an avid crocheter for right now. I am currently involved with an internet crochet group on CrochetMe.com. They're a swell bunch of ladies, I can't imagine not being in touch with them. I've been following Vicki Howell for some time and am so happy for her successes.
