Happy Saturday! Glad to find this place. My name is Julie, I live in Illinois with my husband and 12 year old Golden Retriever, Lacey. I've been crocheting about 25 years, off and on. For the first 24 years, I crocheted incorrectly (vertically instead of horizontally, inserted the hook the incorrect way, could never make anything starting in a circle). I took 1 class at a local Michaels, and learned the right way. It's been like a light switch turned on. I can now make hats, anything starting in a circle. It's amazing. I like to make ear warmers, hats, triangle shawls, blankets. Looking forward to reading and learning even more.
