My Grandmother always did crochet - especially granny squares -so I have a real fondness for them. There is a picture in the foto album of all 4 of us girls in crochet granny square vests - circa 1968. So that was my first crochet item I wanted to learn. I have learned a little more since then with the help of some very talented friends. I admire Bairbre Aines creatvity - and I wish I could knit better. My holy grail would be any article of clothing !

My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was in middle school. I was the only grandchild she taught before she got sick with cancer and emphysema. After she passed I stopped crocheting, but then picked it back up! I love Boye brand hooks and I love making graphghans and hats! My most recent project was a crocheted covered diaper cake for my cousin's baby shower. My next project will be blankets since my grandmother made all the grandchildren handmade blankets, I am going to keep her legacy alive by making the new great-grandkids blankets in memory of her. I am trying to learn how to knit, but crocheting is my passion!

Growing up in the 70s I remember seeing lots of 'square' clothes - granny's of course! I didn't really have any interest in crochet then, but as I got older I was curious to learn. Two people tried to teach me by showing me what to do and saying "you do this, you do this, then you do this...." - it just didn't go in! So about 4 years ago I learned all the basic stitches from a Ladybird Book and then learned how to turn them into 'things'from Youtube. My favourite thing to make has been baby shoes/boots that really look like shoes/boots. I also make hats, blankets, washcloths etc. Until about 3 months ago I had never made anything bigger, then I saw a pattern for a granny square top and fell in love, so got the wool and away I went. Now I love to wear my top and people always ask me where I got it from - they're staggered when I say I made it!

I.m.b, Toni and Asha, thank you so much for participating in this giveaway. I loved reading about how you began crocheting, what motivates you and the heart touching connections to family & friends and what current projects you're working on! Since the response was a manageable number (3) I've decided to giveaway to all three of you! :)
Please send me your snail mail address's via my email: and I will send off books on Monday. Thanks again for playing :)
