Today I've been sorting out my email pile of madness which contains several questions.....sooo, I thought it would be fun to just answer all these questions all in one post.
Also I've been playing around with the old blog making some little changes with it. I hope you like it!!!
I've changed the name just slightly and also I've taken down Bloglovin and Raverly links. I thought I would be using them often at first but over time I have come to the conclusion, I do not like those sites. Plus it's hard for me to keep them updated with everything else I do daily. If you follow me on Bloglovin, I think you might still updates from the blog but Raverly I will no longer be posting on there.
So, back to the topic at hand.
Lets get started!
How long have you been crocheting?
I've been crocheting ever since I was a young teenager. My grandmother sat me down one day during my summer vacation with my cousin and older sister and taught me how to make the shell stitch.
I was so drawn to how pretty the stitch was that I have been crocheting ever since.
What is your favorite hook size you like to use?
I love using a size "G" crochet hook for it just seems to "fit" in my hand just right.
I have very small fingers and anything that is really much bigger than that just hurts my hands so I stick to the smaller ones when making my things.
Are blankets the only thing you make when you crochet?
No. Even thought I make "several" blankets out of yarn I also love to quilt a few. Plus, I enjoy making other things out of yarn like pillows, scarves, socks, pot holders, bunnies, and baby clothes.
There really isn't a thing I would not tackle when it comes to crocheting......I guess you can say
"I'm Hooked".....haha.....get it!
What do you do with all your blankets?
Well. I have several stacked on a large bookcase in my craft room looking all pretty and some stacked in a antique cabinet in my living room . Some I give away to friends or family for special holidays, like birthdays and Christmas or I even give them away for baby showers.
Do you ever sell your blankets?
Yes, sometimes but not often. I prefer making them for our home. I also thought in the beginning of blogging that I would love to open up a little Etsy shop but for some reason I ventured away from that idea. I just don't want the hassle of orders. Plus, I get more enjoyment out of it just making them at my own pace.
Do you mind sharing your patterns?
No I do not mind sharing my patterns but sometimes I just don't have enough time in my day to write them all out much less put all that info on my blog.Truthfully, I get so frustrated when making tutorials or writing out patterns that they are few and far between posted here.
How long have you been knitting?
I've only been knitting for a couple of months. I've been teaching myself by watching Youtube
videos. At first I thought to myself "How in the world am I ever going to learn this!" but I kept at it and now it is all falling into place.
Loads of fun!
What type of yarn do you use?
I love to use Cotton!
It is my most favorite of all yarn to use but I also use Caron Yarns, Red Heart Yarns and Knit Picks Yarn.
Well that pretty much sums up all the questions that I have come across so far. When I get to the end of my email pile and discover any more questions I will do this again.
I hope this answers most of your questions!
