I’ve been crocheting since i was a teenager. I’m no expert, but I’ve gotten pretty good over the years. I enjoy making amigurumi (animals and inanimate objects) for my grandchildren and blankets for friends and family.

If you don’t already know how to crochet a great site to get you started is They teach you step by step with lots of pictures to compare your work to so you know you are doing it correctly. For those who want to learn some new stitches has some easy to follow tutorials that use either pictures or videos or both to teach. A couple of my favorite stitches are the block stitch and the cluster stitch.

So grab a needle and some yarn and make something beautiful!
