Hooked on crochet and knitting

Very seldom do knitters or crocheters enjoy just one type of craft. As an example, I knit, crochet, sew and do counted cross-stitch. I machine knit, loom knit and do machine embroidery. (Have never been able to do hand embroidery).

I really can’t say I prefer one better than the other. It is all according to the mood I am in or of course whatever new pattern I have uncovered.

I love to encourage the beginners with easy crochet patterns. This is a fantastic one from Coats and Clark
