        • What’s on my hook? Potholders

          How long have I been a fiber artist?  almost 40 years

          How did I learn to crochet? Mom taught me the basics and a few years later I just picked up lots of stitches and techniques on my own.

          Items I’m known for?  I suppose doilies.  I’ve made and sold oodles of them.  

          The only crocheted item I ever give anymore is potholders.  Everyone can use them and I don’t have millions of hours wrapped up in them.

          I am getting ready to make a baby blanket and I’ve been trying to decide whether to knit or crochet.  It used to be that I could crochet an afghan far faster than knit, but as I get better at knitting, I’ve gotten faster, so now I can’t decide.  It would help if I had a particular pattern in mind for this, but I don’t.  The blanket is for my daughter’s best friend’s first child.  It will be all natural fiber, organic cotton if I can afford it.

          I’ve become a bit of a fiber snob.  I won’t use acrylic (or any other petroleum byproduct fiber) for my work.  Natural fiber only. I mean really, I wouldn’t wrap a baby in saran wrap, why would I wrap one in acrylic yarn?  But that’s just my preferences (and the views of the mom to be as well).    Just call me a granola crunching tree hugger. :)

        • Tulip, what a history you have! I started a blanket, put it down, unraveled the yarn  and made small items  instead.lol I love to make items that give me quick results. Crocheting is an art that’s being revived and I’m delighted!  

          I am making dishcloths at the moment...a marathon of sorts.
          I’ve been crocheting for a year, my start date was Valentine’s Day 2011.heart
          Watching Youtube videos and using crochet books are my learning tools for crocheting. Occasionally, I freestyle an item.
          I’m known for making scarves, flowers, dishcloths, washcloths and hats.
          The last item I gifted was a blue/white placemat to my hubby.

          My older daughter loves Hello Kitty. For Christmas, I made her a headband/Hello Kitty bow.  She received  compliments on it wherever she’d go.

        • Thanks for posting.  It gave me the boost I need to get going making a new potholder.  I seem to go thru a lot of them, LOL.   The yarn has been sitting there on my coffee table for ages. finally started it while watching a movie tonight.
