I love to crochet. It is a skill I first learned from my grandmother when I was very young, but I was too impatient to stick with it. I picked it up again in the fall of 2002. Since then, I have developed my skills to the point where I have been able to start selling my items. I even created a page:
I also embarked upon my “Hats for Ethiopia” project, which can also be viewed from my site.
I am glad I started this hobby again. It is very rewarding. Except for the Ethiopia hats, I use mostly all natural fibers ~
wool, cotton, hemp, and blends of those. I get most of my yarn from thrift stores but occasionally I buy yarn for special projects from locally owned yarn shops or online shops.
I have also been free form sewing for a few years and some of those designs can also be seen on my site.
