2006: A summary

I only started crocheting and knitting this year, and it has taken me (and my family!) completely by surprise how engaging and absorbing I’ve found it.

Mid-April: I pick up a spare hook and some yarn at my parent’s cabin and get my mother to help me with half-forgotten crochet stitches from junior high crafts classes.

End of July: I pick up a cheap pair of wooden needles and a ball of acrylic yarn at the supermarket and learn to knit using the how-to pages of a Vogue Knitting magazine and some web sites.

    I think I saw your felted bag at Crochetville. I started Crocheting in October and am inspired by how quick you’ve really gotten going. Nice work!
