Hello to all crocheters! I found out about the forum from Crochet Pattern Central and just joined up. As an intro, my mom taught me to crochet about six years ago. It took me a while to get the hang of the various stitches, but once I made my first decent square, I was off and running. Today I am a complete yarn addict and I like making afghans, home decor items, shawls, and lots of other things. I also like to experiment with different stitches to see what patterns come up. Thanks for having this great site, and I'll talk to you soon.
