Hi everyone I am so glad I stumbled into this site today. I have never seen so many cool things all in one place. I am excited to be able to share and interact with so many people who love to crochet like I do. I have been crocheting since I was 4 when my grandma showed me to how make a granny square on one of our RV vacations. I used to make tons of things (dolls, Barbie items, thread table cloths, etc) and even won some county fair awards but when I started college I just stopped. So when I found out almost everyone I knew was having a kid (or two) this year I decided to pick up my hook and start making booties. Money is tight and I can make everyone something great with just a little yarn and some time. Right now I am rusty at reading patterns but I think it will come back to me as I move into making new things. I have found my patience is not what it once was so I like quick, fast working patterns now instead of the complex ones I liked as a kid. Well I will shut up now (I tend to ramble) because it is time for bed. Good night all and God bless!!!
