My mother in law now age 75, start crocheting since she was a young girl-Back in 1950's.
I never took much attention to it coz I use to think crochet are for grannies LOL...
She use to create cute hat for my youngest daughter when she's a baby. But my mother in law never make any other thing beside hat, hat, hat and hat again. there's now like 20 pieces of it. here are some
so.... there it goes, a grandma crocheting hats for her granddaughter.
One day, I couldnt stand to ask her, why dont you create something else than hats? she is kind a regular-non creative person, by the book kind of learning, totally different with me, experimental & explorer. Specially in colors & forms. Hey... I'm an art director & graphic designer. That's what I do & born with.
And I said to her... If I can do crochet, I must've been a good crocheter...
So I took her hook & try the chain.. single chain, double chain... exercising 4-5 rows.
Then it hit me.
I cant stop... I cant Stop.
the first week I went to bed at average 2-3am changing extremely than my routine sleep at 10-11am
I went to a crochet & knit store & bought lots of colorful yarn.
At first I was so confidence to make a baby jacket for my daughter. LOL...
of course that plan blew up ha..ha coz I wanted to create it without pattern.
it end up from a plan to made jacket and became a pouch for my iphone....
so wongky & ugly... ^~^
But I tried and I tried... exploring my own pattern & different color of yarn to create lots of pouch and small bag. Never got bored.
untill today, I even create a blog to share it. about crochet & little things in my life.
