My Grandma taught me how to crochet when I was about 6 years old. I made my Dad a horrible bright orange scarf, which he still has today, and then didn't try anything else till a few years ago, when both my cousin and my girlfriend had little girls. I made them blankets and dresses, sweaters and booties, but I have been hooked on hats since the first one. I just can't seem to stop creating them.
My girlfriend started this business for me. She called one day and said she had an order from one of the mothers at her son's school. And so, Monkey And Me was born.
I have a wonderful husband, who is very supportive in letting me chase my dreams. I also have a 8 year old son, who is very patient with me when I lug him all over for business and who is always ready to give his honest opinion and critique my latest piece of work.
