I'm Sheyna. I'm new to the site and relatively new to crochet, having been a knitter since I was five and being a bit intimidated by crochet! But I'm mad about it now.
I got into crochet so that I could have something to sell on my Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/Sheynalew?ref=pr_shop_more) during the Summer. I just found knitted stuff a bit to heavy for the warm weather so I bought a "Teach Yourself" book and watched some youtube videos and now I can't seem to put my hook down!
I'd like to get to know other crocheters, especially anyone with anything to teach me. Check out my profile or my Etsy shop.
Hi Sheyna! We are so glad you have joined us. I love crocheting in the summer months. The lace you can create with crochet is exquisite.
I think the versatility of crochet is what really appealed to me. I've managed to make winter hats, and in the same week a summer top. I like that it can be used in combination with other crafts as well to give things a finishing touch; like a knitted jumper with lace edges.
Cheers for replying. :-)
