About

Crochet love. It's a yarn thing.

Crafting is a family affair

Crafting with my mother are some of my earliest childhood memories. I remember watching in awe as she flew fabric thru her sewing machine. I was 4 years old when I first sat on my mother's lap and learned to use her sewing machine. With her patience, she fostered a lifelong love of crafting in me.

Sewing was my first love, which over time evolved into scrapbooking and beading. My love of crochet is a much more recent development.

Crochet or knitting? What's that?

After giving birth to my twins, I discovered Pinterest. Those late night feedings left me with a free hand to peruse Pinterest and I discovered crocheted items that I loved. I didn't know the difference between crochet and knitting when I started pinning things, but I quickly learned that my favorite items were crocheted.

Two years ago, I borrowed two crochet books from my local library and taught myself how to crochet. I quickly realized I was falling head-over-heels with all things yarn. I couldn't ever find exactly what I wanted in terms of patterns, so I combined a lot of patterns on my own. This led to my desire to develop patterns of my own, and the rest is history. I try to cram a little creative time into every day and now I get to share my love of creating with my own kids.

Inspiration

I find inspiration all around me. In the beginning, I wanted to make everything for my children, and my circle of inspiration has since grown. From my favorite foods to my favorite shows and movies to my own children.

I love to play with simple, vibrant colors and trying out new color combinations. For me, a simple pattern can become something breathtaking with the right color choices. My favorite yarn is Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn and I Love This Cotton lines as their color selection is extensive, readily available, affordable, and soft as can be.
