Like most crocheters and knitters, I too was taught by my Grammie how to knit and Tunisian crochet when I was 11. She hoped that I would become an avid knitter, but I found crocheting much easier and faster. Since she only taught me the “afghan stitch,” I made one really long scarf from it. There it sat for countless years, until after I became a mother and Army wife. We were welcoming our 2nd niece into the world in 2010, when I decided that I wanted to give her a special gift that you couldn’t buy in the store. I wanted to make her a keepsake, but what? So I found myself in the yarn section of Michael’s, and I picked up some soft white baby yarn, and a plastic pack of crochet hooks. Went on home and started searching YouTube for crochet tutorials, since I only knew one stitch, and how to work in rows, and I wanted to make a newborn hat for that new bundle of joy. So I came across some amazing tutorials by The Crochet Geek, The Art of Crochet by Teresa - if you haven’t seen her videos yet, you should check them out; they’re very easy to follow and she explains everything wonderfully! Anyways I saw her Star Flower Hat in a shell stitch, and thought that was perfect! I didn’t realize it was practically an intermediate pattern when working it, but she made it so easy to follow along. After watching the video a few times, I had my first hat done and I was hooked! So I started teaching myself more stitches through YouTube tutorials and written tutorials online. Then I taught myself how to read patterns and charts. My daughter kept requesting things like, a pink triceratops hat, and a fancy owl hat; so before I knew it, I was designing my own patterns. Then once my friends started seeing my work for my daughter the, “hey, could you make ___?” started to roll in, and Looping with Love was born. Since then I have done Tons of custom items, ranging from photo props and baby sets to amigurumi and character hats. Not until recently have I decided to have my patterns tested, and then released to the crochet world to enjoy! Hopefully in the near future I’ll have all my patterns available on Ravelry :-)
