Hello, all!
My name is Leslie, and before I go any further, I want to let you know that this is my second attempt at blogging. The first attempt didn't go so well because it was about my family, and basically at the time, we were a little boring. I just have to face facts... lol! Our lives are a little more exciting now, so I may get back to that site soon...

Anyway, this time I want to talk about my adventures of crocheting. I'm not new to crocheting, I actually learned how to crochet 13 years ago when I started working at Independence Blue Cross. They had a lunch group called the Crochet Hookers, and the items made were raffled off to raise money for a local hospital in Philly. The first item I made was a hat (so big it could fit waist long locs), then a pillow, then a granny square baby afghan. I loved the granny square so much, that's pretty much where I got stuck. I tried other projects, but I didn't do so well with them, so I went back to the granny. Then for a long while, I stopped altogether.

Now, with the help of some crochet loving friends on Facebook and videos on Youtube, I'm back to my love of crocheting. I started back up right before the Christmas holiday, and I believe I made about 12 scarves, 3 baby blankets, 3 baby sweaters, and my first adult top. It's been very exciting to learn all of these projects, and now I want to share them with everyone. AND... if anyone wants me to make something for them, I can do that, too!

I cannot say that I can teach you how to crochet, but I will post where I get my information from and I'll post any new projects I'm working on. Most of my projects are from Youtube and yarn sites. I'll post a list soon.

As I said, if you want something that you see posted, I am taking requests. I have paypal, and can ship to anywhere in the U.S and Canada.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
