A bit about me….

I’m Cheryl.  I am a crochet blogger, designer and occasional knitter.  If it’s creative, I’ve probably tried it.  But my most favorite thing to do is to crochet.  My guilty pleasure on days off from my 8-5 job is to start the day relaxing in my favorite chair, in my PJs with a cup of coffee and look at crochet and knit lovelies on Pinterest.  In fact, I pin a lot (and I mean A LOT) to my many boards on Pinterest so if you want some serious crochet eye candy, check out all my boards on Pinterest here.  I’d love it if you’d follow me there too! (I also enjoy Instagram and I post a lot of sneak peeks and behind the scenes photos there too.)

In the evenings, you’ll find me back in my favorite chair surrounded by yarn and crochet hooks.  I find crocheting relaxing.  It soothes my soul and feeds my creative spirit.  I love to crochet and visit with my family.  The rhythmic movement of the hook and the feel of the yarn running through my fingers blends together with the sounds of love and laughter and somehow they become intertwined.  That feeling of contentment is the best feeling of all.

My husband is my biggest supporter.  He loves to watch what comes off my hook and especially loves it when I crochet something just for him!   We also have an amazing son and daughter in law who bring a lot of love and laughter to our home.  And rounding out our brood are our 4-legged ‘kids’:  our two dogs Ben and Cricket and our Grandpup, Franklin.

I learned to crochet from my grandma when I was 7.  And you can read all about that here. I’ve pretty much been crocheting ever since!

I learned to knit a bit later…when I was 16.  When my sister had baby #2, I thought it would be oh-so-nice to knit her family Christmas stockings.  I followed a pattern for the first stocking, then designed a train stocking for baby #2 and then before I knew it, she had SEVEN children and I was designing stockings like crazy.  She thinks this is incredibly amusing and seems to time my late stocking completion with the news that she’s expecting again.
