Hey dere. I'm Rachel, but most of my online friends call me Kat. I am 19 years young and I reside on the very very east coast of NC. I started crocheting about 5 years ago as a freshman in highschool. I saw a senior learning crochet for her senior project and I knew that my grandmother had been a very skilled yarn worker, so I forced my mother to teach me the basics, and within days I had already surpassed her skill levels.
I mostly enjoy making hats, second only to stuffed toys. I have made one afghan [if you could even call it that. It is very unevenly proportioned, but hey, it is really warm!] and I am currently working on another in my spare time. [i also make scarves sometimes too.]
I'm not really big on reading patterns, [unless it is a chart, I love charts. I've even made a few of my own!] but I know how to, so when I absolutely have to, I can. Most of the time I just wing it. I have a basic hat pattern that I use, and I will normally just follow a picture of the character or design I am attempting to create at that time.
Sooooo yah. Hi
