Hello fellow "hookers"
I've been a "happy hooker" since I was about 7. My Nana taught me how to knit and crochet about that time, but when she went home and I had questions, my mother could only help me with crochet, so that's what stuck!
I've been teaching at a local shop for about two years. Anything from beginning crochet to project classes.
I used to make a baby blanket and a pair of booties for my friends when they had kids, then I had one of my own and ran out of time to do any more! (BTW, for a funny nesting story look here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...77#post2067377
I've made socks, purses, afghans, and DD has quite a few sweaters! I've started an annual tradition: holiday sweater for DD for portraits. I've made one so far (she's two, but the first year I couldn't find anything I liked).
Incidentally, if anyone's interested, there's a national association called the CGOA (www.crochet.org
). And no, I don't get anything if you join, it's just a fun group of folks who love to crochet! They have regional and national conventions, plus a HUGE library of patterns for members.
Have fun hookin', everyone!
