Pretty boring. Nurse, mom, wife. I own two dogs and two cats so all my crochet projects come with a special combination of fibers added. I have been fiddling around with crochet off and on almost all my life but have only recently become more motivated to actually make something other than a wash cloth. Although I find that cotton is the most comfortable yarn for me to work with. I am getting used to working with other yarns and how they handle. I don't like patterns that call for one specific expensive and hard to find yarn. If the pattern isn't flexible in that area, then I don't buy it. Part of making things yourself for me has to do with making something more out of something less by adding thought and sweat. But anyway that's me.
