I'm not good at sitting still. I think it's the crafters malady that time not spent accomplishing something feels wasted. I taught myself to crochet at age 22 when mononucleosis forced me to rest more than I was willing to. So I bought a "how-to" book and enough yarn for the first project and two hooks. By the time I was on my feet I had a blanket that now keeps my little brother warm in his college apartment and two kittens completely addicted to sitting on my lap while I stitch. While I had dabbled in crafts before that time, after my illness it became a large part of my life. I continue to develop my skills in sewing, costume making, embroidery, spinning, and knitting (though how people efficiently weild two sticks truly mystifies this crochet gal).
I also don't like wasting things. I often carry "Bits and Ends" creations. I have just as much fun making those…
