I get asked this question frequently, and I think it’s a very important question. It is like knowing for people what was the first movie they watched, first book they read, or their first love. It has significance behind it.
Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog!
My name is Amanda, the crochet-addict behind this blog. With this blog, I will be talking about all things crochet: current projects, reviews on yarn, hooks, and crochet books, and more.
I first learned how to crochet when I was a teenager. There was some yarn and crochet hooks in a bag at the back of my mom’s linen closet that I found. I wasn’t sure what you could do with this yarn, but I was intrigued and wanted to learn more.
One day I joined a crochet club that was starting up in my neighborhood. I met like-minded people that wanted to learn how to crochet as well. At first, I was all thumbs as I struggled to hold the crochet hook the right way as well as the yarn. I could feel my hands tensing up as I tempted to make chains and my first few stitches. Eventually I got the hang of it and finished my first scarf. Even though it wasn’t perfect, I was proud that I finished something. I guess you can say I’ve been ‘hooked’ ever since.
My intention for this blog is that we can all come together as a crochet community and share our passion, talk about it, and express ideas. I know many people are as passionate about crochet as I am, and I’d love to hear from you! Don’t be shy, as I love talking to anyone that enjoys crocheting. I’m always here to discuss it with you. Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with me through this website by clicking on the Contact Page at the top of your screen. You can also contact me on Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest.
FOR MY FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT….
I now have an Etsy Shop!
When you visit my Etsy Shop, you will find handmade, crochet baby items. I have baby blankets, baby sweaters, and newborn hats available. There are many different colors to choose from, depending on what you are looking for. I can even custom make an item for you if you don’t see any color combinations you like, so just ask. Be sure to check back on my Etsy Shop for new products. If you are looking for something else that is not baby related, I can do that as well! I always strive to keep the customer happy and give them exactly what they want.
