    My Blankets

    I'm posting these so a friend can see them. This is the pirate baby blanket. It's very thick. The main body feels like satin wrapped around a springy warm yarn. The trim feels like rabbit fur. it's going to a new baby in Montana and the winters get very cold there. This will be...

    I never met my grandmother,

    I still have a blanket she made over 40 years ago. My mother could never figure it out, but kept a gold-plated hook that I still have. I really wish more people could have such a positive outlet, maybe there would be a bit more patience and appreciation for things today.

    It is how I de-stress

    and I enjoy the different colours of the yarns. I used to knit but can't now as I have a RSI but luckily it does not affect me when I crochet.

    Crochet Is Fun!

    I am going to share one story, out of many in my 34 years.  About a year and 1/2 ago, I taught myself to crochet, from a book that took me step by step through it.  I love to share information about crochet, about different types of yarn, crocet techniques, and patterns...

    I love doing craft late into the night.

    When I work with my hands to make these Granny Squares, I feel that I am one with time. I don't run faster than it that I am out of breath, and I don't run slower than it that I feel useless. I feel a sense of being totally in sync with my inner self. How should I explain it? It...

    I have crochet since I was 8.

    A great aunt of mine refused to give me dinner until I made a granny square. I didn't appreciate that at the time, but am thankful now. I make lacy sweaters, afghans and baby sweaters in yarn. I make doilies, table clothes and bedspreads from thread. I have made lacy sweaters...

    I am becoming interested in crocheting with

    recycled yarn, perhaps from old clothes from the charity shop. Has anyone had experience taking apart knitted clothes and reusing the yarn or wool to crochet new wonderful things?

    New Hobby

    I started to crochet early July 2012 and I just can't get enough of it. It is an amazing hobby and it's so pleasing to be able to use something that you have created. It gives the item so much meaning! I have started putting up crochet videos on youtube as well :3 so much fun!

    When you make something

    for someone, you're giving that person your memories and your thoughts. It's like theres a single thread of yourself being woven into your yarn. I love making things for family and friends :)

    Crocheting; Another Part Of Me

    My grandmother tried teaching me when I was in elementary. I had always admired all the things she would make, most was for others like baby showers, toys, things for holidays for her job that she'd give out as gifts. She'd also make stuff for the house like dollies, butterflies...

    are some baby blankets I'm making. This is what they look like so far.Don't know yet whether it will be a boy or girl so decided to do one of each but tried to make them a little bit neutral except there's probably no way a boy can pull off pink! lol

    It hurts my hands and wrists a little, but I love making things for people. I make beanies and scarves mostly. But I made a couple of headbands for one of my friends' daughter. It was cute. I made her a whole little winter set a beret, scarf, and two headbands. I was so proud of...
