Hi! I stumbled upon this site just today (while looking up info on some "mystery yarn" from Big Lots), but I'm glad I found it. I've been crocheting since I was a teenager (many years ago), but only got really actively crocheting again about 1 1/2 years ago (after one of my sons, an autistic young man, died of a seizure). I've since accumulated more yarn than I can use on projects for just the family, so I do a lot of charity crochet (especially for Project Linus and Snuggles Project). Because so much of what I do is charity crochet, of necessity most of my stash runs to machine-washable acrylic yarns. I tend to make a lot of granny-square projects -- but at least don't attempt to use granny squares for everything, the way it seemed to be when I was learning to make granny squares back in the 1970s. I live in a small town in central Illinois, and can buy a little yarn locally, but have to drive (or order online) for most stuff. Looking forward to meeting other crocheters here!
