i taught myself to knit in sophmore year and my mom saw me doing it so she taught me how to crochet.  I love crocheting because it's faster and easier to fix mistakes Grin

  HI! all! My very talented grandmother taught me to crochet about 8 years ago.  We were stuck in the house because of a huge snow storm and I wanted to do something more portable so she taught me how to make a granny square and I made it into a huge blanket.  And the rest is history, I'm an addict.   And now I try to teach people whenever I am asked.... people are always so curious.. and some think that its going to "be so easy" and they soon realize that it takes time.

Like many others, my grandmother taught me how to crochet. . . a few days ago.  I'm already a knitter, but I was ready to learn something new so I had her show me.  She was so happy - she loves doing it and has always wanted my sister & I to learn!  So far I've only done practice rows, but I'm here browsing around for a good first project.

About a month ago *lol* I was really bored at work as it's incredible quiet with very few customers, so I decided I needed to do something with my hands. My friend was knitting a scarf at the time, and I already knew how to knit but found it a touch boring, so I decided to try crocheting (which I had tried to learn when I was, like, 10, but failed). I went and got a small ball of wool, a hook, and a book, and started practicing stiches and whatnot, then a few days later got some patterns and better wool, and started making real stuff. So far, I have one finished hat, and I'm in the middle of a scarf for my boyfriend, a ruffled scarf for myself, another hat probably to sell, and an afghan. Heh, I should probably finish one thing before moving on to another, but I need to keep busy, so I keep projects with me at work and at home so I always have something to do - I have a bad habit of biting my nails if I'm bored, so by always working with my hands, it keeps me from doing that.


Wow.   I would seriously start looking for a new job like NOW, before you get laid off when they close up from lack of business.

My mom taught me the basics when I was 8. From there I read books on other techniques. Now, I'm teaching my 9 year old daughter how to crochet. She already loves it.

I learned over 30 years ago when I was 8.  I crocheted until I was 13 and then quit because none of my friends did it and I didn't think it was cool.  I started again in my early 20's when I needed a hobby and have been doing it ever since!  I do have a few other hobbies but this is my main 'crafting passion.'

I am teaching myself right now and I'm almost 41. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?  Tongue

I taught myself from a cheep little pattern book (Crochet Made Easy from Coats and Clark) in the fall of 2001 becuase I'd just started college far away from home and I needed to have something to do on planes.  I was pretty sure knitting needles were a no-no right then.  I still knit more, but it's really really nice to be able to do both.
