Can you tell us how you got started with crochet?

I watched my mother’s friend!

Where does your crochet design inspiration come from?

My inspiration comes from everywhere, sometimes it is something I see in nature, a fashion magazine, something on TV — too many places!

What is your favorite yarn to work with and why?

I love DK weight yarns, in particular cotton yarns. I find they are light enough to make beautiful garments, but still thick enough that it won’t take forever to complete the project.

What are your most popular patterns?

Do you have any other hobbies besides crochet?

I love all crafts including sewing, knitting, floral arranging and more. I also love to paint, cook and garden!

What are you doing when you are not crocheting?

Probably cooking 🙂


Thanks Maria!
