The first time I picked up a crochet pattern, I had no idea what it was talking about! It was like another language! I had learned some very basic stitches from a college roommate, but we had never gotten to the point where I was reading patterns.
As a newlywed, I discovered a book on my in-laws' shelves that taught all kinds of yarn crafts, including crochet. From that book I learned how to read patterns and combine simple stitches to make more complicated stitches. After that, I began making baby shower gifts and creating things for my own children. I love finding new and interesting patterns. My boldness in trying them, and creating some of my own designs has continued to grow over the years.
Since getting married, we have had a lot happen. We've had four children, buried one at birth, and been through too many hospital stays with the rest…
