I am a stay-at-home mom. We have 6 children ages 4-14. I also homeschool. I learned how to crochet in 1998 when I was pregnant with our 4th child. I enjoy all yarns, threads, hooks sizes, etc. I usually go through phases - months and months of crocheting doilies/thread items, months and months of crochet afghans, etc. My desire is to start designing my own patterns. There are so many talented designers out there, but it just might be time to spread my wings and fly.
