Elke's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Elke I am a waitress and my hobby is crocheting. I was born and raised in Germany. I learned how to crochet in school when I was 8 and did not care for it too much. My first project back then was a scarf and it was quite sad looking (LOL). It was just long enough to reach around my neck and tuck into my jacket. After I came to America I lived in a small town outside of Buffalo N.Y. . One day i noticed one of my neighbors crocheting this beautiful afghan. Needless to say I wanted one so I asked her if she would teach me how to make it and she agreed. It took me a while to finish it but it looked great and I was hooked.
I wanted to learn more so I taught myself a lot of different stitches, patterns and also how to make doilies…

I was making my creations as gifts for family and friends and they kept telling me I should sell some of my things.
Now I am here sharing my creations with you.
