My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 10. That's been 17 years ago. To me, crocheting is so relaxing. I can pour myself into what I am working on and not worry about anything. I am currently working on a dedication for my daughter (which, by the way hasn't been concieved yet!)
I know that knitting is more popular (though I never could figure it out) so I was wondering how many of you enjoy crocheting.

I used to crochet quite a bit. My mom taught me when I was six. (I'm 29 now) I used to make doilies a lot, and I have made baby blankets for all four of my kids plus many of my friends babies as well. I haven't actually done any crocheting for a long time though. I'm too much into the origami crafts now, and when my life gives me a bit of time, that is what I'm working on instead.

Personally I think crocheting is much better than knitting too!

I have made baby blankets for all of my nieces and nephews. I love giving them something that is from just "me". My sis told me that she could see my love in every stitch!!!

I started my own personal crochet renaissance last fall when I taught dd's Girl Scout Troop to crochet...I hadn't crocheted for ages! After this adventure I got a copy of Nicky Epstein's book on crocheting for Barbie (at least, I think it's by N.E....maybe not). Lots of fun. I think I learned to crochet around age 6, which was over 30 years ago. I was designing my own Barbie clothes back then.

There was a discussion on Groovy Crochet on here awhile back, so there must be some more crocheters out there who haven't responded yet.

I, too, love to crochet and haven't figured out how to knit!
I make blankets hats and scarves as of right now. I have a really hard time with all but the most basic of patters, my attention span cannot handle all those abbreviations!:
love it tho and have made some really cute stuff, seeing as tho I just learned 8 months ago!

I am just learning after many failed attempts at teaching myself from books, etc. My aunt is teaching me, and I love it.

I love to crochet. I start lots of projects and never finish them though. I am making myself a little bag right now to attach to the sling to put money, keys, etc. in. I want to make a sling too, I have a pattern but finding the time is hard.
