I've crocheting for 14+ years.
How did you learn to crochet?
I learned when I was 16, for home ec. My homeschool teacher taught me the basics. I taught myself how to read patterns.
How to do a gauge swatch.
What is your favorite thing about crocheting?
I love seeing the finished product and the look on the recipient’s face!
I love designing loveys and stuffed toys. Loveys are quick, easy and a perfect gift. Stuffed toys can be whatever you like. My girls love getting toys from me.
When you’re creating new designs, is there something that inspires you? What’s your muse?
My family inspires me. My older sister asked me to make a horse lovey. That challenged me to write my first pattern.
Finding testers who will push you to be the best designer you can be. Ones who are trustworthy.
I’m sure it’s impossible to pick just one, but is there one project that you’re particularly proud of?
The project I'm most proud of that I designed is my horse lovey. Shaping the head how I wanted it was tricky. I was so proud when it was finished.
Don't second-guess yourself. You never know what you are capable of until you try.
