Growing up I was blessed with family members who enjoyed teaching me their favorite handicrafts. Sadly, thanks to cheap mass production, most of them have gone the way of the dinosaur. However I still cling tightly to my favorite: crochet. It may be old-fashioned and equated with doilies, but ever since my mom taught me my first stitches I have been, well… hooked. I love the ability to create something beautiful with just some yarn and a hook. The meditative repetition of stitch after stitch is soothing. And I will not deny that I absolutely enjoy hearing those words, “Wow! That’s crochet?” These things fuel my desire to create fun and unexpected fashions that will be enjoyed by others as much as I enjoyed making them.
