I'm 17 and i've been crocheting for 3 years now and i get wired looks at school too when i take my crochet with me  :lol 

 

 

Don't worry about those weird looks at your school. Think of it as if they are admiring & thinking how nice it would be to learn what you are working on!

I'm 32 this year. I started in late 2016 and I am addicted but still semi-new to the craft. As a stay at home mom, I have lots of time to research patterns and ideas for my kids. I have made quite the stash of Amigurumi and costumes for my 7 year old.

So how old are you? I know that crochet (and knit, for that matter) isn't just for your 80-year-old grandmother anymore, though I'm sure some grandmas out there still enjoy it. :)

BAD question!!! LOL

Hi Lilly! Here's a direct link, if you really want to see it. I don't have everything listed yet, and some things are expiring tonight I won't be renewing. 20 cents per listing for four months isn't worth it, I'll wait for a Christmas bazaar.   https://www.etsy.com/shop/craftingatthepoole/

Sadly, unless you use a parent's account as your own, you can't open an etsy shop in your own name until you are 18. Ask your parents first, 'cause you need to hook up a bank account. 

Just some small things to start with, here's a pic of the one I have the pattern for finished. They're little stress ball amigurumi, which will hopefully interest you, since I think you said that's all you like! I too can't just sit down and crochet a baby blanket. Not unless I have a really good reason and am watching a movie. ;)

The other stuff I have so far to convert into patterns are a new design of fingerless gloves in a stitch pattern I came up with, a muff that goes over a baseball cap made out of bernat blanket yarn, and some other random stuff.

I am 79 and the great-grandmother of nine grand-kids in the last three years. Thanks to Google I have been crocheting for approximately two years, although I did crochet a baby afghan back in 2003.  In 2018 I decided to start by crocheting this same afghan, hoping it would be easier as some of it would come back to me--NOT SO. http://iweararedhat.blogspot.com/2018/11/baby-afghan-crochet-blanket-gone-wrong.html

Over the last year I have crocheted several beanies. I have one more beanie project waiting on me, but I have just started a lacy baby blanket--I am thinking it may be too advanced for me. I will be posting questions to the forum; I have a way of making mountains out of molehills.

I turned 59 Feb. 13 (59 1/2 soon). My big sis taught me granny squares when I was 9 (10 :think). I learned basics in 8th grade as part of the sewing class. Then I collected books and taught myself and I've been :crocheting ever since. I take my "knitty ditty" bag (as little sis called it) everywhere. I never paid attention to people looking, unless they asked questions.
