A Few Things About Me

  1. Thanks ya'll. Howieann, what part of Indiana? I lived in Gary and Hobart for a few years in the late 1980's.
  2. Hi All, So glad to find this site. I am teaching myself to crochet via utube and other online sites. I started this past January, (so just shy of a year), and have become quite addicted. My first project was an afghan. Rather ambitious for a first project but I thought what the heck. Jumped right in and learned some simple stitches. Single and Double crochet with lots of color changes. About halfway through it started to get wonky but I continued not really knowing what the issue was. Figured it was tension as it felt like I had three thumbs when first starting and trying to learn how to hold everything. I added a scalloped shell border, and it helps hide the wonky a little bit. I love it and use it all the time and the odd shape makes it feel more rustic. :o) After a few months and several more projects I now know I was dropping a stitch at the end turns. Once it clicks and you have those aha moments it is easy to figure out the mistakes. To date I have made 4 lap or couch blanket / afghans, ( three for xmas prestents this year), two scarves, one hat, a bath pouf and am currently working on a shawl. I can't seem to go more than a few days without getting the itch to crochet. I am looking forward to learning and sharing with you all. PS: I've attached a pic of my favorite project (second afghan I made) so far, a granny square lap blanket. Michelle
