When I was about 7 or 8, my mother taught me how...
Created By: Laurea McLeon

When I was about 7 or 8, my mother taught me how to crochet, and I did not produce the quality projects that she did so I set down my hook. About 2 years later, I picked it back up, and tried again on my own. I wasn't holding the hook or yarn right, but I was producing projects that were now comparable to my mothers. Now 30 years later, I am the founder of a charity Crochet/Knit group that makes comfort shawls for the elderly, chemo caps for women going through cancer treatments, snuggle blankest for pets in shelters, and sweaters, mittens & hats for children in low income families. I feel that I have changed the lives of those we donate to, the members of the group, and my own buy my craft, and will forever hold my hook high.
