I love to crochet with all my yarn-y heart. I am a knitter, too, of course, but crochet owns me. Wrapped around its little hook, I am. Perhaps because crochet is the earthly tie between my grandma and me, or maybe it’s the desire to cheer on the underdog. Who knows? I’m hopelessly in love with loops. 

If you’re new to crochet, there are many great resources to help you along the way. My first recommendation is, of course, someone in your life who crochets; maybe your grandmother, an aunt, an elderly neighbor you’ve been meaning to visit.   The internet yarn community, too, is bursting with the loveliest people, always willing to help. Try Craftsy.com for an interactive class or Interweave.com for downloadable video tutorials. And don’t forget Ravelry.com for a global experience. Search these sites for their forum groups, as well. You might be delighted to find a local weekly gathering of crochet lovers, like you.   Whatever the level of your crochet skills, it gives me such joy to know you’re here and I cannot wait to see your projects posted online!
