I registered with this site a while ago, probably for a pattern, but I don't think I've ever used the forums. Didn't really know about them until I picked up the Crochet Me book at the library recently!
I'm Josefina, Swedish/Portuguese mother of two living in MN with my American husband.
I learned crochet in school, as all Swedish school children do. I picked it up again about 5 years ago and have alternated between crochet and knitting quite a bit, but it seems crochet has the upper hand for some reason.
I like to make bags and purses and am currently working on a little cosmetic bag that started out as a 'test bag' for a cross stitch embellishment.
Hello! Welcome to the forums. I knit and crochet as well, though I also spend more time crocheting than knitting. And I also love cross-stitch embellishment. I've been playing with cross-stitch on a Tunisian simple stitch background lately. Be sure to check out the free eBooks and enjoy!
