I’m a homemaker and mother of four (living). My mother first taught me to crochet when I was young, but I really picked up crochet when I was 17 along with help from “storybook crochet” by Sally Ann Grossand. At 17, I also taught myself to knit using a kit from Lion Brand Yarn that I purchased at Wal-Mart. I enjoy making things for my children, particularly hats and toys. Amigurumi is particularly fun!
