Hello from cold NJ. I have been crocheting for well over 50 years. I am looking forward to learning all that I can from everyone here. I have, in the past, made doll clothes & rag rugs & sold them to raise money for animal rescue. Right now I am starting to make baby sweaters for lots of friends' grandchildren. I am anticipating retirement in a couple of years - so I can crochet (& knit) even more!
