Crochet gives Christina a boost of self-confidence and is a wonderful stress reliever.
Who Taught You to Crochet?
I taught myself to crochet when I was 10 yrs old. My mother and my paternal grandmother both knitted, my maternal grandmother crocheted, but none were very good teachers or I just wasn’t a good student.
How Long Have You Been Crocheting?
After I learned how to crochet and made Christmas gifts, I didn’t crochet again till I was about 22. At that time, I learned how to make doilies and made some baby stuff for my first daughter. I kept crocheting making afghans, hats and etc…. So, I would have to say about 30yrs altogether.
Why is Crochet More than Just a Hobby to You?
For me, crocheting gives me pleasure, self-confidence, and is a stress reliever. By pleasure, I sell enough to buy more yarn and I give lots away. For my self-confidence, I have evolved with my knowledge and my ability to the point where I felt confident in my ability that I applied to test for Cute as a Button this year (2017). As a stress reliever, my husband and I are raising 2 of our grandkids due to the fact their mother is addicted to opioids and was in prison.
