My grandmother taught me crochet when I was around 10 or 11 years old, along with some simple cross-stitch, but it was long forgotten with my childhood days. I recently went back and taught myself how to crochet again after receiving a bunch of yarn as a gift.
I've pretty much only worked with acrylic so far, but I'd love to make something in cashmere one day. Once I get good enough to warrant dropping that much cash on a yarn!
A hat to keep the sun off my face. I'm extremely pale. And then a big, huge, cuddly blanket.
I've only been doing it for a few months, but I can tell I'll keep the craft going. I love how much more portable everything is with crochet (compared to my first love, sewing), and how you can turn out projects pretty fast. It provides a nice break from always having to be at the machine to quilt. With crochet, I can take it anywhere, and working in public is a great conversation starter, and leads to loads of compliments on my work, which I can't say I dislike! ;)
Pretty new to crochet. Have made a few scarves and hats. Located in South Austin.
