I've been lurking for a bit so I thought I'd post an introduction.
I'm 40 years old and I've been crocheting since I was 12 or 13. The first thing I made was an afghan. My mother taught me how to crochet. I still have an afghan I made while in high school.
I live in Georgia and I have 4 children. Two out of the house, one in college, and one at home. I taught all 3 of my girls to crochet. The two older ones have both made afghans. The youngest (12) is not very crafty yet, but in the next few years we'll work on it more.
I enjoy making afghans and have made many for cancer patients and babies in need. Last year I decided to make scarves as presents. I accumulated quite a few as they are so easy and quick to make. So now I'm giving scarves to charities.
I've been taking photos of my work for years. I need to get the pictures scanned and posted and also make an album. I give away nearly everything I make.
I love making scrap afghans. I have three or four of them in progress. I've made seven caps for the capital so far. Those are my main projects right now as they work up so quickly and there is a deadline. You can make a lot of caps from one ball of yarn!
I remember playing with a crocheted draw string purse as a child so a few years ago I made a bunch for my daughters. Their friends loved them so I made a bunch from my own pattern. Last year I made 5-7 ponchos. They were quite fun. My daughter wears one a lot and it's not one of my favorites! It's even a size XL and she's a medium, but she fell in love with it.
I tend to crochet more in the winter, great time to make afghans. I really want to make some sweaters in the future and probably more ponchos. I have a lot of patterns (can never have enough!).
I'm a housewife and I enjoy other crafts too like sewing, beading, and scrapbooking. I have six (yes six) miniature dachshunds, each one different.
I would like to learn how to knit. I've taken a class but, well, I still need to learn! In two hours I made a little square. In two hours time I could crochet half a blanket!
I really enjoying viewing the items made on here. This is a fun place to lurk!
