I am a homeschooling mom of one who has been known to crochet while giving spelling tests! I first learned to crochet and knit from my grandmother. It seemed to me that her hands were always busy with something! As I got older and began college and working full-time, crafting fell by the wayside for me. That is until one day when I was facing a 7 day car trip. I knew audiobooks and itunes would only get me through so many days. I spent some time trying to find something portable and fun to help me pass the time. I stumbled upon a set of crochet hooks I had purchased about a year ago with the intention of picking up crochet again. Armed with that set of hooks, a few skeins of yarn and a few online patterns and tutorials I had printed out, I was ready to take on the road trip. I finished my first 3 baby hats in 2 days. After that I was hooked. When I showed the hats to my photographer sister in law, she turned me on to the photography prop baby hat craze and I have been designing hats & headbands ever since. My renewed interest inspired my blog & Etsy shop. I really enjoy coming up with original designs and finding a new ways to combine stitches in interesting patterns. I am learning new techniques all the time and have rediscovered my creative side! I also sew a bit, but I love crochet for it's unique textures, portability, and calming effect. I am always available for questions and comments on my blog & Facebook. I love helping other get started in crochet!
