I have posted on here a few times...but basically, I have been teaching myself to crochet via the internet.  I LOVE it!!!

Here a few of the things that I have made for swaps recently.

This is for a dog swap (also my first time not using a pattern)

This is my first 'real' amigurumi...I am really happy with the way it turned out and was almost sad too send it away.

Finally my first crocheted hat!

I am finding crocheting to be totally addicting!  I just made a bunny, am working on a monkey and then another bunny for the kiddos for Easter.

Very nice!! You are obviously alot smarter than me!! Ive been trying to learn off the net for the last few weeks and still dont get it.. I think i have the basic stitches but still cant read patterns!! Sad

Cant wait to see what you come up with next!

Seriously in awe of the craft stashes that are on this forum.
I bow down to your awesomeness.

Thank you!   I really do like to do it.   

Reading patterns took me a little while too...actually learning to make a magic ring took a whole day, but once I had it, I had it.

These are great.. I love the dog coat Smiley
(Just got the dogs shaved and they are looking a bit pathetic)

I love that there are so many gazillions of possibilities with crochet, you made a hat, someone else makes a sphere and I make a bunch of primroses!

Well done on teaching yourself via the internet!

Thank you everyone!   

I am having a ball crocheting and love the fact that it is portable...unlike my sewing machine and that there are times when it doesn't take a huge amount of concentration...unlike cross-stitch.

I have several more projects in the works, maybe someday, I will even be able to do it w/o a pattern. Although, that is probably a long way off.  Cheesy
