From the time I learned from my great-grandmother until now over 25 years. Actual time crocheting (my 20s were a blur of school, work and debt, having a stash was not an option) probably about 15. Howd you start designing? I got pregnant. I picked up the hook to make some stuff. I realized I liked designing rather than following a pattern, now Ive been doing it over 6 years. Favorite yarn? Self striping in beautiful vibrant colors Where ya from? I spent the better part of my life in Southern California, and while I miss Disneyland and the predictable weather, I find that moving around from place to place a more interesting adventure. Currently Im living with my family in the Bay Area but that will probably soon change as my husbands military orders do. Update: Im not back in Southern California for at least the next year. Well see where the Navy takes us next.
