Bio: Sitting in the kitchen of my aunt's home with scraps of yarn and the biggest crochet hook she had a passion was born. At 12 my aunt would crochet Barbie clothes with the smallest thread I'd ever seen. She would make hats and blankets, anything really. She slowly began to show me how to work the hook and I would start her projects. When I had mastered chaining stitches she showed me the next part, and the dream began. I can't tell you how many scarfs, and afghans I made throughout my early years but there were lots. Fast forward to today and I have expanded my knowledge and skill level tremendously. I love to make baby items and household items. I prefer to crochet with cotton yarn as there is no other feeling than cotton. It washes well and will always keep you warm. I love to learn new techniques and have started to slowly create my own designs. I am taking all that knowledge my aunt gave me at 12 and using it to hopefully inspire others. I have taken up where she left off and have began teaching my son how to make chain stitches. Hopefully the art of crochet will live on with him.
