    New Crocheter

    Hi! Youtube can be a big help when learning crochet. You can pause, rewind and learn anything you want to. I suggest small things like hats or dishcloths. Have fun!
  2. My unborn granddaughter. I wanted to crochet her all kinds of stuff. I taught myself to crochet from youtube. Now she is almost 4 years old and I love love love to crochet! Now I also have two more grandchildren to crochet for!

    Lighted Crochet Hooks

    I love mine also. I crochet in the car at night on trips and doesnt bother anyone.
  4. I've taught my both of my sons girlfriends and also my sons (all three) and my daughter. The only one to still continue crocheting is my older boy's girlfriend. But I figure maybe when they get older some of them might pick it back up. Her and I share patterns and she always coming to me for help. It's nice to have someone enjoy crocheting as much as I do.

    Well I've taught three people to crochet. Both of my son's girlfriends. Now my son's girlfriend taught her mother and her sister to crochet. So now they all have the crochet bug lol. It's not your grammas hobby anymore! Jk, but I love having other people to crochet with and share ideas and patterns with. So this is great.
