I started crocheting at the very young age of 9 when I took an after-school class in 4th Grade. My first ball of yarn was neon orange so, after only a class or two, I was soon wearing a neon orange crocheted headband and a neon orange crocheted belt. I carried my Bonnie Belle lip balm around in, what else?, a neon orange crocheted purse. I was in 4th Grade fashion heaven!
I fell in love with crochet and began turning out more headbands and potholders than my family knew what to do with. I actually made my grandparents an afghan of brown and orange (again with the orange!) yarn that they kept on their gold velvet couch for many, many years.
In college, I crocheted in my dorm room and in law school, I crocheted in my tiny little apartment. Within a few years, I was married and had kids as did all of my friends so I began churning out baby blankets…
