Hello all! My name is Jessica and I'm new to Crochetville. I've been crocheting for almost a year all together, though I'm still pretty new at it. I bought a couple how-to books and only know a few basic stitches. I just had a baby in April so I can't wait to learn more so I can crochet all sorts of baby stuff!

Hi! My name is JoAnn (although my friends have been known to call me "MannyMa"), and while I was born and raised in NYC, I currently reside in (if not enthusiastically "hail" from) Manassas, VA.

 

I've been crocheting for 40+ years now. I LOVE it, but it was not until recently that I actually started to believe anything I created was "gift worthy" (thank you, Erin, for sharing your rectangular afgan pattern; my friends and relatives were getting REALLY tired of my scarves).

 

I consider myself to be a tad above being an "Intermediate" crocheter. What I mean by that is that I have "mastered" all 6 or 8 or 10 crochet stitches, and, generally, I can both read and follow a pattern. In addition, I consider myself to be "experienced" in that I know my stitches are "tight" and that my projects (primarily afgans) more often than not adhere to gauge.

 

In this respect, I think I might be able to HELP other crocheters (particularly "newbies" or other "intermediates") if they should find themselves "in trouble".

 

************

 

At the same time (and given my new found confidence in what I might be able to accomplish given my handy-dandy hooks), I will be looking to other posters not only for guidance -- should I (perhaps) choose to venture into areas of more intracacy -- but also for certain QUICK and EASY pattern suggestions that will be well-received by my "constituents"

 

(for example: My most favorite cousin in the whole world is about to become a Grandmother for the first time (it's a boy). And while I have the baby afgan totally under control (I went with a 27x36 inch V-stitch; the Shower is in August), I'd LOVE to present her son and daughter-in-law with an heirloom "Christening Outfit" (dress and bonnet; the birth is scheduled for November). And I don't know how to do that. [if I can't get that accomplished, I'd love to make just a hat (can do) and a poncho-type thing PLUS a "Baby's First Christmas" Stocking.]

 

**********

 

Well, that's who I am.

And that's what I hope to be able to give to -- and get from -- this "experience".

 

Thank you for providing this Forum.

And Thank You for allowing me to join, and become part of this "community".
