Crochet

Hello!

Hi there, my name is Kim. I love to create things, either through drawing, crochet, paper crafts, polymer clay… whatever I can get my hands on. Most of the time I am concentrating on crochet. I’ve been crocheting since around ’04 or ’05. I was working at Walmart and passed by the crochet hooks, yarn and knitting needles on my way to the back of the store to clock out at the end of my shift. I decided to buy one hook and I think one or two skeins of yarn. I don’t think I tried to do anything with them for a while. I asked my mom one day who doesn’t crochet how to get started.. I had tried on my own but the way I was doing it, the loops were staying on the hook like when you’re doing Tunisian crochet. My mom was able to somehow show me how to cast on my foundation chain and the rest was up to me…. hehe. Thankfully there was YouTube videos eventually to catch me up to speed and show me the vast world of crochet. I’m not sure now how much I crocheted in the beginning. I had that first hook I ever bought and it floated around my little cottage because I haven’t always been so organized and I’m still struggling with that. It stayed in my possession until one Xmas while visiting my brother and his family who live out of state and I only get to see once a year. I have two nieces and the younger one had been trying to learn with said hook because Aunt Kim brought it for her to learn with… In the end she cried when I was getting ready to leave and was going to take the hook back.. even offering her another newer hook and she wasn’t having it. So instead of looking like a heartless, selfish person I let her keep it..knowing that it would most likely be soon forgotten and lost forever in the back of her closet or chucked in with her toys. Now, I’m not really a materialistic person but I liked that hook. I got over it and moved on… after all it’s not worth causing my little niece to have a horrible tear filled night thinking that I hated her. Lol. So now all the years later I have done quite a bit of crochet and have collected many more hooks. I’ve mostly made presents for people whether it was their birthday or not. I enjoy making things for others. You put a lot of effort, heart and love into projects. I have been where probably every other crocheter has been before… Unappreciated. You’ve made something for someone either because it was an order or a gift and it was treated as though it was made from garbage. Most people don’t understand the amount of hard work, patience and love that goes into our work. Thankfully not everyone will treat you and your work this way. I hope you’ll stop by again and visit. I plan on sharing my projects, my favorite patterns and aspirations for future crochet creations. Toodles for now. 🤗
