I have been crocheting for 30 years
Created By: MARY WILEY

I have been crocheting off and on for over 30 years. A left handed girl taught me how to crochet. We were 13 years old. We sat across from each other and did what I called the "Mirror" method. What she did with her left hand, I did with my right hand. People are amazed when I tell them that.

I have 2 projects going at once. I have an at home project and a project, I keep in the car. I love to go on long car rides, as long as I am not driving. I am not a big fan of driving. Most people don't like my long distance driving anyway, which is good! :-)

So I just sit and crochet and keep the driver company.

I have tried knitting several times, over the years. But, I do not enjoy it as much as I do Crocheting.

I think Crocheting relaxes me. I have made several throws for people over the years. I already have next year planned out, as far as projects are concerned.

I am going to make squares out of all my old yarn and make throws for several people on my Christmas list.

My husband does not know what to get me for Christmas. I told him that I want some "HomeSpun" yarn to make a throw for our couch in the living room. We are trying to decide what color to use. It is a toss up between Homespun's Antique or Thick and Quick Wine. I am making an afgan for a friend using the Wine color.
