    Dragon Skin Pouch

    I made this for my husband. He wanted a good size pouch to fit a deck box with a playing deck of Magic the Gathering cards, some dice, and tokens. He chose the yarn, the fabric for the lining, and the button. He loves it

  9. My maternal Grandmother mainly, and her sister helped too. I was probably around 7yrs old. My Grandmother gave me my first hook and a ball of yarn and sat with me teaching me the basics. After stopping in my teens and almost forgetting what I was taught, I relearned how to crochet when I was 27 by myself, as I was pregnant with my daughter and on a doctor-ordered semi-bedrest at the time and needed sometimg to occupy myself. My MIL had a hook, a ball of yarn, and some magazines that I "played" with trying to remember what I was taught 20yrs before. After my daughter was born I started getting books and expanded on what I was taught when I was a child.

    who taught you to crochet?

    My maternal Grandmother and her sister taught me the basics when I was very young. I stopped crocheting in my teens and didn't pick it up again until my late 20's. I ended up getting a couple of books to help me remember what they taught me many years before and I've been crocheting non-stop since.
  11. As of right now, I have at the least 4 crochet WIPS, and 3 knitting WIPs going. I also always generally have a "purse project" going too. I actually carry a backpack style bag everytime I go out, instead of a purse, and I try to make sure I have a small portable crochet project in it at times
