Learning to crochet is so much fun!
This course teaches you the basics of working with a hook and yarn and gives you step by step instructions on how to create 5 really cute projects.
The course is meant to take around 2 hours for each day, which includes time to learn, practice, and make the finished project.
This is a great way to for kids to learn how to crochet. Parents can join in the fun too and learn together with their child.
I first learned how to knit in 2003 when I was visiting an aunt in Montana. Although I had grown up a hardcore tomboy and wanted nothing to do with "women's work", I was curious about the mechanics of knitting and asked my aunt exactly what it was she was doing as she manipulated the yarn. Much to my chagrin, she pulled out an extra pair of needles and a ball of yarn and said she'd give me a knitting lesson! I protested but my curiosity got the better of me and I let her teach me what has since become a life-long passion. A few years later, the same aunt taught me how to crochet and I've never looked back.
Having been born to a Mexican immigrant family in Southern California, I learned Spanish and then English from birth. In high school I decided to learn French and fell in love with both the language and culture of France. Since then, I've had the opportunity to live, study, and work in France and Italy. I'm a language teacher of Spanish, French, and English as a Second Language. I also teach knitting and crochet and recently became a Professional Organizer.
Nowadays, I knit and crochet year round concurrently. I enjoy knitting lace blankets and shawls as well as projects with cables. I'm a much faster crocheter than knitter so many times if I'm making a gift for someone it's crocheted. I LOVE color and enjoy putting together different color schemes for projects.
