I was surfing for a free child's poncho pattern to make for my friend's granddaughter and came across Crochetville. Had to join. My aunt taught me how to crochet when I was 6, sooooo many years ago. She taught me how to make a chain that went off the porch, down the walk and onto the road. When I finished, she pulled it out and taught me how to wrap the yarn, loosely, of course. Then I started doing the chain stitch again. Since then I've made so many wonderful things. Last year at our club (LAOH Division 39) I taught about 18 women how to crochet, even those who were left-handed.
I'm really looking forward to learning some more.
