I've been a crocheter since I was a kid. Never have been able to make the switch to knitting, tho' I have tried a few times. My brain just doesn't work that way. :\ I use crocheting in my jewelry work as well as making blankets, shrugs, and such for friends, family, and myself. I'm currently running a crochet and fiber arts Meetup group in Houston, Texas, teaching various crochet and fiber techniques. If you're local, look us up at Meetup.com and come visit!
