Hi! I'm Tami. (Koukla-pronounced KOOK-la) I've been crocheting "hard core" for about 2 years now. My mom taught me the basic stitches and the rest has been self taught. I got to thinking one day that maybe my hobby could help send my daughter to college...this has not happened yet, but one can still hope!! Thank you for stopping by to learn a little about Koukla and I hope you enjoy your patterns!!!
