I taught myself to crochet years ago, but didn't do a lot of it until I found out I was going to be a grandma 6 years ago. Of course I had to make a blanket for the baby and then that led to toys. I also made blankets for myself, my children and several other family members. I taught my daughters to crochet too. Until now I had never actually written a pattern. I always got caught up in what I was doing and never thought to write it down LOLI just recently started making beaded jewelry and wire wrapped items and I love it! It was something I had wanted to try for a long time, but didn't have the confidence that I could actually do it. Once I started I wished I had started sooner, it's so much fun!I am so thankful that Craftsy came along and allowed me to share my work. Craftsy Rules!!!
