When did you start crocheting?

I started crocheting seriously in the Summer 2005 to make my best friends a baby blanket for their little boy.

Are you more likely to have one or several projects in process at a given time?

I typically only work one project at a time.

How did you get interested in and/or learn to crochet?

My left handed niece wanted to learn to crochet, but my right handed wife had difficulty teaching her. I'm ambidextrous, so I learned how to crochet right handed, flipped it and taught my niece how to crochet left handed.

What is your favorite pattern, stitch, or yarn?

My favorite yarn was (I believe) a Lion Brand Babysoft yarn called 'confetti' that is no longer available. My second favorite yarn for quick, soft blankets is Lion Brand Homespun.


I'm John, a father of two boys, who can crochet just about anything rectangular. I happened across a NoVA crocheters event at Grounded. If I can scare up the time, I hope to be social and learn to crochet other basic shapes. :)

What John is saying about this Meetup Group

Erika is a wonderful Meetup coordinator and NoVA Crocheters are a great bunch. I always have a great time and never fail to learn something new.
