Do you work with patterns or just make it up as you go along?
How long have you been crocheting, and what got you started?
If you use patterns, where do you find them?
I ask all these questions mainly because they are always running through my head. I just recently taught myself to crochet. Watching my grandmother produce some amazing pieces, I wanted to do that as well. I'm still beginning and learning but improving with each new project. Course, I still have a hard time making squareish type items but can do the hats - my grandma is the opposite - funny huh? And my mom and aunt are knitters verse crocheting - which neither my grandma or I can get the hang of. At this point I still need patterns, and understanding them is still a struggle sometimes. I have bought a few books, which are only ok and just too costly at this point. I need to check out ravelry. And I have found a couple online that I have printed off, but I have only been able to figure out one of them. I am determined to get the hang of this!
