Crochet

"She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands."
Proverbs 31:13

Fisherman Wedding Afghan

One of my favorite pastimes is working with yarn; more specifically crochet.  I do knit a bit, but crochet really is my hobby of choice.  

My Mom taught me to chain back in the 70's when she was taking classes herself.  I remember making long yarn chains as a child, ripping them out, and starting over again.

I became more serious about crochet when we brought home our son.  It gave me something to do in the evenings and I wanted to make things for him.

My love of the craft grew and I've enjoyed making many afghans, baby blankets, scarves and hats; mostly to be given as gifts.  There is something especially rewarding about creating with your own hands and then being able to bless someone with it.

As I crocheted more and more, I started to improvise on different patterns and eventually started creating my own.  I count it a privilege to have had two of my patterns published in Crochet World.

I look forward to sharing my future crochet work with you here.  

Stay tuned; more to come!

  1. You are more skilled than I in crocheting, Heather, but I would love to see in what issues your patterns were published. Were they published before 2011? I notice that Annie's is selling a disk with ten years of patterns on it.

    1. Hi Becca, thanks for your nice comment. I didn't design the one in the photo, that one is from an old Leisure Arts pamphlet. I did a Christmas afghan for Crochet World and it was published several years ago. Here is a link to it on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-blooms-blanket. Thanks again. Heather
