I'm 20 now and startet doing craft at the sweet age of 7. these days i made crossstitching on handkerchiefs or towels. then 11 years later i teached myself how to knit. it was hard work because neither my mom or my grandmom could show me how it works. (my mom isn't arduous in showing someone something. She even can'T knit herself very good) my grandma lives more than 800 km from me, so she can't show me anything about crafting. Last year i teached myself how to crochet nt noticed, that it fits me better. -(always losing stitches on knitting).
i crochetet mostly in my classes, so the teachers went nuts when they saw me with the hook ("put away that fucking knit-stuff"- "Its not knitting- it's crocheting. See- i use a hook!") but after a few months the acceptet it
it was just so chilling and most of the hours in school where much more liveable
one evening i sat in front of TV and crochetet a bunny for my soon to be mother in law. my dad just looked at me O.O "Wow. if anyone told me 3 years ago, that my daughter would do stuff like that, i'd probably killed him" now i am doing it whereever i go or stay. it's just making me feel comfy.
by the way on our KIP i was the youngest girl and everyone was amazed how good i handle the hook.
they all accepted it but many strangers think that my handmade things are bought.
by the way. if i made some grammatical mistakes just watch over them - i'm from germany so it might be that it's hard to understand me
