In the beginning...

Jan 2012.  Here I am proudly showing off my first ever attempt at crocheting. I've come a long way in a year and a half!  LOL  Crocheting has become my all-time favourite hobby since then.  I can tell you in complete honesty now that I'm pretty sure I can crochet anything.  Yes, I mean ANYTHING.  But here's why I wanted to start a blog:  There was a time (a long period of time) where I thought I was a pretty good crocheter (is that a word?)  and I could make anything IF (big IF) I could find a pattern for it.  There's a pattern for just about everything out there, but most good patterns cost money.   I cannot even begin to describe the frustration of not being able to find a good free pattern!  This is my solution for anyone out there who shares my sentiments:  Now that I am not bound by the restraints of following patterns (I can pretty much just pick up my hook and wool, and make anything I want); I've started writing them down; even taking pictures now and then of my work in progress, and I plan to post all of my patterns FOR FREE for anyone who would like to use them!  So please Enjoy! :)

  1. :) You give me hope! I'm going to buy some hooks today and start your granny square pattern with the hope of one day making my boy a blanket. We'll see :)
