Tell us a little bit about your first project. What did you make and how long did it take?

I think I made a small blanket. I have made many blankets over the years including a rainbow king size one for a friend. I don't do patterns much but that is changing as I branch out into trying to do clothing. A few hats here and there. I want to do cabling, so that is my new goal. I knitted years ago and may take that up again sometime. Recently got a new batch of free yarn so I am going to use it up before I get more.

How did you become interested in your craft?

My brandmother mostly. She used to knit sock monkeys and also quilted. As kids we would do the ties in the patchwork quilts. Crawling under the quilt frame was fun for us. Great memories.

Is there a special place you like to knit, crochet or create and do you have a suggestion on a good place for the group to get together?

I like to crochet while I am watching sports games. Although since I haven't had cable in 3 years, it makes it happen less frequently. It is a very calming thing for me to do. I recently had thumb tendon surgery and only now getting back to crocheting again.

Introduction

Marcus here! Crocheting for 33 years since I was 9 years old. Mennonite grandma made great things. I have quilted, knitted, and crocheted different projects. Mostly now I crochet Pokemon characters for my Autistic son now. :)
