In this Crochet Stories, Gerard has been crocheting since he was knee-high to a grasshopper and sharing beautiful creations with others.
Who Taught You to Crochet?
My sister taught me at a very young age….she only taught me the basic stitches such as SC, DC and triple crochet. From there I just made basic scarves etc.
Then a good friend taught me how to read patterns and then….pardon the pun….I was hooked!
How Long Have You Been Crocheting?
Since I was knee-high to a grasshopper ;-).
On and off for over 40 years. As I said, a good friend taught me how to read patterns and from there I was totally engaged. I made mostly afghans (pictured below) but did do a sweater for my sister-in-law one Xmas…..somewhat challenging.
Why is Crochet More than Just a Hobby to You?
Because it is so relaxing….and I enjoy the look on other people’s faces when I give them something I’ve made by hand.
