Karen Watkins' Profile
I was taught to crochet by my Mum and Grandma, while I was growing up in the 1970s. My relatives used to save their magazines for me and I would cut out the crochet patterns - I still have those patterns, which have now become vintage, from the 1970s and early 1980s. For many years I mainly crocheted with cotton to make lace but have recently turned my efforts to wool to make creative blankets, although I do still use cotton to make smaller gift items.
