Hi there, my name is Melissa. I was born and raised in North Dakota. I have three dogs and love creating things from yarn and cord.
My introduction to crocheting began for me when I was around 10 or 11 years old. My mom would crochet off and on, and, of course, I wanted to learn too! I didn’t get too into crocheting, however, I had a good base of what it meant to crochet, and I could make a sad little patch.
During that time period, I was also an avid macramér (what’s the term for people who macramé?!). I would make hemp beaded macramé bracelets and sell them.
Fast forward 10-15 years, I dusted off my old crochet hooks and decided to give it another go!
When I was re-learning the crocheting techniques, rules, etc. I found it difficult to find one place where I could really learn and understand (at my, slower, pace). I want this to be a place where we can learn together, and also create new, fun patterns to share.
I’m very excited to be on this blogging journey, and even more excited to become the crocheter I always knew I could be.
