While working here I am often asked for my opinion on new crochet designs which come in for review. I became interested in crochet and Wendi gave me hooks and yarn for Christmas last year. My first project was a scarf – the Huglee. I’m still learning how to read patterns but I get the stitches. I would rather design my own things than try to understand someone else’s. I get what the patterns are saying but we don’t speak the same language. Just learning!”
