I'm a self taught crocheter and an aspiring crochet designer. I learned to crochet when I was seven after watching a lady doing crochet. I was so fascinated by how quick and nimble her fingers were as she created a pretty lace. I abandoned the craft for a long time and just pick it up again last year. Currently I'm learning to write my crochet instructions based from my own crochet designs. I hope to learn and share my experience in this forum and also hope to make friends along the way. This year 2010, I'm learning to knit also. I want to combine crochet and knitting in my work as soon as I master the art and craft of knitting.
