My Bio

I am a published crochet designer.  My very first published design is just barely out in the Spring 2010 issue of Interweave Crochet.  It is called "Bella Dress."  I am so excited to be starting out as a designer.  I'm also incredibly nervous and unsure about a lot of things.  I am looking forward to all that comes of this new adventure.

  I love natural fiber yarns.  I like DK weight yarn the most.  I love colors, and bold combinations.  I have a blog www.aprilcreates.blogspot.com where you can get the inside scoop on my designing endeavors.  You can also find my personal pattern line for sale on Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/stores/april-creates-designs-by-april-garwood.

I have been married to the same wonderful man for 7 years.  We have 4 beautiful daughters.  I am a full-time stay-at-home mom.  I am so grateful that I have that opportunity.  I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (often refferred to as the Mormon church).  My faith in God and Jesus Christ is the most wonderful part of my life!  My family is the next most wonderful part. Crocheting is probably the 3rd most wonderful part ;)  

I have a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from The University of Oklahoma.  I have lived most of my life in Oklahoma.  I love it here!  I love life!  I love God! I love my family!  I love to crochet!
