Just how old are you?

Recommended Posts

I am 48 and am pretty much self taught, have been crocheting 5 or 6 years........oh how I wish I had listened to Gram and my Aunt when they tried to teach me in younger years. My 24 year old DD has not picked it up yet, but has hooks, a book and yarn for when the bug bites.

Hello

 

I'm 40 and have been crocheting since January this year after my MIL got interested in crochet and decided that getting me addicted to a new craft was the best way fro er to learn (go figure, we live on different continents)

I am 36 and I've been crocheting for a little over a year... newbie! Trying to teach my 13-year-old daughter, but she gets frustrated easily so I gave her a book and told her to have at it.

I'm 32, and I learned how to crochet at school. We did a granny square first, and I was the only one who figured it out the first try! I began a lap blanket, but lost it over the years. I began crocheting again this past Christmas, so it's been almost a year since I restarted. Now I can't figure out what I want to make next!

I am 51 and started crocheting when I was 13 from a home economics class in Jr. High School. :cheer I was taught to knit too but dropped some stitches and had to start over and swore I wouldn't never knit again and haven't so far! :yes

 

I see we have 2 thirteen year olds and some 14 year olds.. :clap that is wonderful! I was shocked how many 20 - 30 year olds there are... :hook

I was born in 1950. I have crocheted since my early 20s, which was in the 1970s.

I'm 34 and have been crocheting for probably 30 years. Not continuously though. I had a few years here and there where I hardly crocheted at all. In the past year or so I've really gotten back into it and I've been crocheting at least a few days a week if not every day.

I'm 38 and my grandma taught me when I was really young around 12 or 13. It didn't stick too good, I think I just made a baby blanket. lol Then when I got a few years older, she showed me again. When I was in my early 20's, I made afghans for my grandma, parents and brother for Christmas. Then when I got married, I made one for my husband. That was pretty much it as I was more into cross stitching. A couple months ago, my daughter asked me to teach her so I started back. I've made 6 hats and a bunch of toys. I love working on rounds which I had never done.

 

It's very therapeutic for me.

I am mid 40's and have been crocheting since around the age if 8 to 10. I am so glad to see young folks crocheting and taking their "gift" with them to school! I was told a few months ago that our "craft" was dying.

I just hit 30 and have been crocheting off and on for about six years, but I only REALLY got into it this past Spring. I've been a yarn nut ever since. :P

I'm 39. Started crocheting when I was about 8. Mom taught me. I crocheted with her for about four years and then lost the habit. When I was pregnant with my son (who is sixteen almost seventeen), I started up again. It didn't take long to fall back into it.

 

I even taught him to crochet when he was about 9. Not that he does it much anymore.

 

I'm really glad to see so many under 25's crocheting. When I got started it was stereotyped as an old lady hobby. I never understood that. It's an awesome stress buster.

I will hit the big 40 this year bummer!! I started crocheting well at 9/10 maybe. My mom taught me to chain and sc. But didn't really start picking it up till about 8 1/2 to 9 years ago I think. Got into it again because I was a stay at home mom with nothing to do. So I taught myself to read patterns and took off from there. Now I have a full time job and not enough time to crochet. There should be a law that states that we crafters should have a few days a week we dont work for crafting. And we should have our own holiday. LOL!!!

I'm 57 and have been crocheting for about seven years. A crocheted doily I received as a gift from my aunt inspired me to learn how to crochet. I asked her a few questions about the basics and from then on I taught myself.
