I love crochet and am motivated to share that love of craft with others. The way I choose to share that love, is through the patterns I write.
My goal is to always expand my own skills. So you will see that reflected in my patterns and the range of techniques I use.
Create a global community, one person at a time, where we can share projects, tips and learn more about our craft from each other.
Back in 2016 my then 7 year old daughter asked me to teach her how to knit. I did not know anything about yarn or knitting, but I figured since crochet only used one "thingy" and not two, it would be easier to learn. To this day, my daughter still can't crochet (what is it they say about mothers teaching things to their daughters) but from that time on I was hooked.
As a child, I always wanted to be a fashion designer, something that went over like a stone with my scientist grandmother. Crochet was the start of rediscovering that dream. Yarn was a gateway that lead to studying color, knit wear, sewing and clothing making. In the future, in addition to crochet patterns, I will be adding a line of handmade bags made from natural and recycled fabric and yarn.
As for the rest of my life, I spent the past 15 years as a corporate recruiter, focusing on engineering and manufacturing. I grew up in southern Californian but between being an active duty Marine and being married to one, I bounced around from Yuma AZ to Orlando to San Clemente CA. I currently live in Beaufort SC, with my handsome husband Ted and my two kids, Isabella and Marcus. We have two rescue cats, George and Jerome and a Golden Doodle named Ringo.
