A little over a year ago I decided to create my blog so I had a place to post pictures and talk about my favorite thing in the world...knitting and crochet. Through fiddlesticks I have come to meet so many other crocheters and knitters! My online yarn buddies. I love following what they do as well. This internet is such a wonderous thing.
This is the coolest diary a girl could ever have!
I come by my yarn habit naturally. My grandmother taught me to crochet at a very early age of 12. I have been "hooked" ever since then. I often mention both of my grandmothers in my blogging. They were both proficient with a crochet hook! I have their crochet hooks that were handed down to me, as well as some of their afghans. I like to think that they are watching over me saying, "that's my girl"!
I'm a "Carolina Girl" fast approaching the big 5-0! It's an interesting place to be in life.
It wasn't until I joined a meetup of knitters that I began my adventure into knitting. Oh My Goodness! I remember trying to teach myself to knit as a teenager and getting frustrated. But with a little hand holding from my knitting buds at our weekly Tuesday night meetup I have discovered a whole new world! What a great group of ladies they are. Full of fun and giggles, skills, friendship, warmth...I could go on an on. We get together for a yearly trip to SAFF (Southern Animal Fiber Festival) in Asheville for a weekend of yarn shopping that is out of this world!
I hope you enjoy my blog and will come back. I love, love, love comments!
