I have always loved crafting of all kinds since I was a child. I started crocheting on a whim...My kids were in a production of The Nutcracker one year and had long rehearsals. Parents were required to stay and wait for them. I needed something to do while I waited so I bought some yarn and a few hooks, watched some YouTube videos and printed out a few how-to tutorials from the Internet. My OBSESSION was born! The rest is history! Everything I know about crocheting I taught myself. It is how I relax and de-stress. Creating new patterns and seeing the finished product is a much needed creative outlet for me.
