I started crocheting 7 years ago after my first child was born. I wanted to find a new craft that I could make things for children. I quickly learned how to design a graph and crochet pictures onto afghans. I make a lot of afghans with personalized images for gifts for friends and family. During the past 7 years, I learned to expand my skills. I make a huge variety of things from blankets to clothing to stockings. I love the process of thinking of things to design and see how they work up. I also love designing things for specifically for my children. I find crocheting to be very relaxing at the end of a long day.
