My fascination with yarn began when I was about 5...
Created By: Carolyn Buckler

My fascination with yarn began when I was about 5 years old. I remember playing with 2 sticks and a piece of string for hours and my dad telling me that someday I would learn to create something with yarn. When I was about 13 my neighbor began to teach me how to chain and I began to learn to single crochet. Several years passed and my sister became pregnant and I deciced that I would make an afghan for the baby. I accomplished this feat and made my first granny square baby afghan.Several years went by and I got married. My mother-in-law was an avid craft lady. She croched, knitted, made quilts, etc. She gave me enough yarn to make an afghan. I made this beautiful blue and white afghan with popcorn flowers. I gave it to my grandparents for Christmas. Years went by, I had children to raise and little time to "play with string. Almost before I knew it my children were grown and once again I became fascinated with "string". I took a knitting class and made a purse and now every night I relax with some sort of project either with crochet or knitting. I am so lookig forward to having grandchildren and making more afghans for them and maybe teaching one of them the joy of "playing with string."
