The Yarn Artist

When I was young, my grandmother taught me to crochet and I used to love sitting with her watching hockey games and just playing with the yarn.  As I grew older I would occasionally pick up a hook and make a blanket but it was about 6 years ago when a friend of mine posted something she crocheted and I was shocked that she liked it too!  It was at that moment that I learnt there was more to it then granny squares and the chevron (stripped) blankets.  There was a whole world out there filled with glorious patterns!  I didn’t know how to read a pattern but I was determined to learn.  I had a few friends over to teach me how to read a pattern and made my mom an awful sweater which she wore!  (moms are the BEST!) From there I learnt how do crochet graphgans (pictures into a blanket) and finally moved onto Amigurimi (stuffies)

I slowly mastered each task and about 3 years ago I started testing patterns for designers which is a huge honor in the crochet world.  A lot of the items I make are the very first of its kind (meaning the pattern hasn’t been released to the public for others to make).
