I worked on origami for a couple of years and have created some really cute things but I kept thinking that I wanted to create something a little more durable.
I chose crochet based on the fact that my Aunt Janie has been crocheting for years and I knew that if I ever got stuck I could alway go to her for help. Safety net in place, I picked up a beginners crochet kit complete with mini instruction booklet and crochet hook.
If you're just starting to learn how to crochet too, so far I've learned that mistakes are easy to correct, completed projects are rewarding and a little patience goes a LONG way!
I'm totally hooked! ;-)
