I am a crochet dabbler. By that I mean that I love to crochet, but I don’t create my own patterns. Nor do I create anything that is terribly complicated. Those patterns that want you to make 84 squares and then stitch them together? I don’t make those! Nor do I tackle things that have to fit, like sweaters. Not gonna happen. But I love to keep my hands busy in the evenings while watching t.v., so I crochet a lot of afghans.
Elizabeth, my best friend during high school and college, taught me how to crochet. I’ve crocheted off and on for at least 40 years. I used to make doilies – lots and lots of doilies. But the fine work required for doilies is getting harder for my hands and eyes. Lately I have been crocheting up a storm creating shawls and afghans. I display them here.
I live in California with my husband, two cats and a horse. My other blog is Equestrian Theology.
