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!
