A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite hook type
  • Favorite projects
    amigurumi, hats, baby clothes
  1. A dress for a doll and I ended up making her matching underwear i thought it was so cool that I could make clothes from yarn, i was hooked from that moment on.
  2. Usually I start in the evening when my little one sleeps, so from 8 till 11 pm or so. Then she wakes up for nursing and changing, so Im no longer the nightowl I used to be LOL
  3. I don't hide the yarn. We are on a tight budget, so I only buy cheap and on sale yarns. My boyfriend is supportive of my hobby and thinks I should sell my creations or the patterns and I plan to take his advice
  4. Im 38 and have been crocheting since I was about 7
  5. Just wondering if there are any Dutchies out here?
  6. Hi from the Netherlands! Im fairly new here too and love Amigurumi i took a class on designing amigurumi and that helped figuring out a good method for the pattern making part of it.
  7. Hi and thanks for the warm welcome Yeah, Utrecht is right inbetween Vlaardingen and Amersfoort. It's a big city, lived here all my life. Whereabouts are you in the UK? I know some folks in Hyde close to Manchester and my boyfriend has relatives in London. Its a small world
  8. Hi everyone, I just signed up here, because I was looking for a place to meet with other crocheters. I have been crocheting since I was a child, my first projects were clothes for my dolls. My grandmother and mother both loved to crochet, knit, embroider, so I caught the bug too and it never left I'm sort of a multi crafter these days and also enjoy sewing, jewellery making, etc. I love making amigurumi, hats, baby clothes and those have been my recent projects. I want to start designing my own patterns, sofar I have had some happy accidents and then totally forgot to write them down. I also buy patterns from stores or get them from magazines. I also want to learn tunisian crochet and already bought a set of hooks to get me started I also signed up for a tunisian crochet Craftsy class a while ago, but still have to watch most of it. I love working with cotton and acrylics, unfortunately my allergies don't allow me to use wool, which is a shame, because i love fuzzy stuff For the rest I am a mom of a beautiful little 9 month old girl, we live in Utrecht, the Netherlands, just living the simple life Im looking forward to meeting you all and happy crocheting!
