    Post Hey, Hi, Hello




    Just thought I'd say Hello, from Toronto, Canada. I'm a crocheter of 25 years or so. I like to think of myself as a intermediate person, but often will get started, and then get frustrated, and toss it aside. I am a procrastinator whom very seldom will complete something. So I have many projects on hand.

    I love clothing, mostly ponchos, sweaters, etc. I have done lace tablecloths, afghans, and the odd collar in my day. Recently I am working on a couple of nice poncho ideas. Nothing officially completed, so I can use encouragement to go on.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's projects and hearing from everyone.

    I love to learn new patterns and see new ideas and different ways of doing things.

    Hello Catherine,

    I use to sew all my clothes and my daughters when she was little. I retired 3 years ago and picked up crochet again. I also just taught myself how to knit. Knitting is a challenge for me as I cannot tell what the stitches are supposed to look like. If I make mistakes in crochet I can fix them but in knitting I have to start over again and again. I have more patience since I have gotten older or maybe it is because I have more time to do things I didn't have time to do when I was young.
