My Crocheting World

Well here I am...Starting my very first blog!?


I am a...well a hooker-a-holic as I call it.  What can I say?  I love crocheting.  I love creating things out of a ball of yarn.  It really is amazing how that happens, isn't it?  I have recently started creating my own creations and I'm totally addicted.  I wanted to share this with everyone in the world of crochet...and even if you don't know how to crochet maybe someday you will. 

I started really crocheting a couple of years ago but my mom taught me quite a few years ago (like 10 years maybe?).  I of course stopped crocheting because it must've not interested me that much back then.  But now, well now I just can't get away from it.  I am in love with my hooks, yarn and of course the books and patterns.

I guess I should also tell you a little bit about myself (besides crocheting my heart away).  I am a mother of two very gorgeous boys and a wife to an amazing husband.  I am very sure their names may come up sometime in this blog of mine.  I also work for my parents' sod farm in the spring, summer and fall months.  That becomes a very busy time for all of us!  It doesn't give me too much time to crochet but I'm making a goal for myself that I will do some 'hookin' at least twice a week.

Anyway, so that's me in a nutshell.  I hope you enjoy my creations!

  7. Thank you so much for being a sponsor of the 4 Day Frenzy! I love to crochet almost anything! Though, I would have to say my favorite things are hats! There are just so many different designs and the color combos are limitless! Not to mention that for the most part they are rather easy and quick to make

  8. I'm making your fingerless gloves (teen/small adult pattern) this afternoon and have a question about Rounds 9 - 11. The directions are to repeat Round 4. However, if I do that, I'll be putting the FPDC into the first FPDC of the group instead of into the third FPDC of the group. Doing that will disrupt the spiral of the pattern. I'm thinking that the directions for Rounds 9 - 11 should be to repeat Round 4, so that I slip stitch into the first 2 sts, then begin the 3 FPDC cluster. Does this make sense? Has the pattern been corrected? Thanks so much :-)

  9. Well I just put 2 and 2 together, I have been coming to your blog for quite a while, and I always loved your patterns on ravelry, I just never realized it was you in both places. I love your patterns they always stitch out very nicely. Thank You!
