I have been crocheting since my babysitter sat her down one afternoon when I was 7 years old. More than 22 years later, I still loves to pick up a hook and yarn. all items made are her own original patterns. I have two degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc) in Biology. My university career taught me to be observant (the critical eye) and I use everyday observations, math, and my imagination when creating new designs.
