I've been crocheting for 3 years, I started a year after I had breast cancer. A lady was kind enough to crochet a hat for me to wear during chemo and I said to myself I would learn to make them for other ladies if I made it through it. I am still in love with making everything! I want to make it all. I am working on a Frank O'Randle pattern right now, hoping to enter it in the fair this summer. I love all yarn!
