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.
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.
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.
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. :)
