I am 70! I taught myself how to crochet and knit!

I am just curious to see the age of my fellow hookers on here. I'm 18 and I've been crocheting since I was 16. It's funny because sometimes I will take my crochet to school with me and my friends giv

27. I made a 10mile long string of chain when my mom taught me when I was 7. Doing what my mom said soon became something I wanted nothing to do with :devil I didn't start crocheting again until a few years ago but now it's an illness of which there is no hope.

Looking at the youthfulness of this crowd -- so many of you in your 20s and 30s -- gave me a giggle, because . . . yesterday a canasta friend who is probably fifty-something said her husband hates it when she crochets because it makes her look old! And, left unsaid was that it makes him feel old. I think if I were her I'd tell him that cooking his dinner nightly for a zillion years makes her feel old.

 

I was recalling that my late dad used to say when I was crocheting he thought it was comforting. And he was in his eighties.

My aunt taught me how to do a granny square when I was about 13. It was so hard to learn because I felt like I was doing it wrong to what she was doing back then because she was showing me right handed and I was mirroring it to do it left handed. She would get so frustrated at me. Now I will 30 the end of this month and just recently got back onto crocheting. I am loving learning new stitches but I have to watch YouTube videos on how to do them. And yes most of them are from right handed people and I just mirror what they are doing

I'm 38 and started crocheting in grade 5 so about 9 or 10 yrs old. My odd is 14 and I taught her at age 10, my mdd is 12 and was also taught at 10 but its a bit harder for her, my ydd is 8 and I taught her last year to do a single crochet, lets just say we had alot of rope from single crochet. But my odd and mdd are awesome at the knifty knitter, I unfortunatly cannot get the hang of it, go figure.

It's so nice to see so many younger people crocheting. I'm 44 and learned around 17. In the last few years just learned how to read patterns. Teach the young now to read patterns. LOL
