When did you start crocheting?

I was about 6 years old when I learned my first stitch.

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

I always have several projects going at once, some of which I haven't touched in years (bad me!). I tend to get bored with one project, especially if it is all made from the same color.

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

My grandmother passed it on to my mother and they both passed it on to me. I find it very relaxing once I get comfortable with a pattern.

What is your favorite pattern, stitch, or yarn?

I used to always use Red Heart yarn. This group has enabled me to branch out and try some new things. I'm currently working with hand-dyed alpaca. I like patterns that have written instructions and not just diagrams! I don't do well without a pattern.


I'm Erika. I'm the founder and organizer of NoVA Crocheters. We've been meeting for over seven fabulous years now. I'm happy that I've been able to meet so many wonderful friends.
