I started crocheting at a young age, 8 or 9, when my grandmother would watch my sister and me during the summers. Every day she would make us spend a half hour playing the piano or crocheting. I never liked the piano, so I always chose crochet.

Fast forward to my first year in college, living with a roommate who was just as broke as I was.

I brought that picture to my local yarn store and handed it to the woman behind the counter. I told her I needed to make this hat but I’ve never knit before. She ran around the store gathering everything I needed and I went home and had that hat done within a few days.

My daughter is now eight years old and I knit or crochet constantly. Everywhere I go, my knitting bag goes. Soccer practice, doctor’s appointments, lunch breaks at my “real” job. Everywhere.

It makes me so happy to create something that people get excited about. I can’t imagine ever not knitting or crocheting.
