Subject: Big Hug

Comment: I have been crocheting almost forever. My grandmother made me do all sorts of needle work. It has turned into a life time hobby. You get a big hug for introducing me to snowflakes. It doesn't take long to do some of them, some are really intricate. I hope to have a pile done by next Christmas. Thanks again and hugs.

Comment: I teach seniors how to crochet, these seniors have never crochet or learn to read patterns. The now make lap rugs, hats shawls for seniors who live in nursing homes, the program only runs february until june. that is when we ususally run out of funds for yarn. This gives a purpose to our seniors and gives them a day when they have to get up and come out of the house. I enjoy bring this art form to seniors

Subject: love the patterns

Comment: My grandmother forced me to learn how to crochet little scallops around handkerchiefs, with a bitty hook and thread, when I was about 8. She said if I could do that, I could do anything. I guess I've done millions of stitches ever since! But boy, did my little fingers struggle back then.

I crochet for charity now, afghans especially, and really love a site where I can find lots and lots of patterns all in one place. Thank you! :)

Subject: getting there! :)

Comment: I am thirteen years old and have had no one to really teach me how to crochet but I would like to say that this has been one of the best sites that I have ever come across! I love all of the patterns you can find in just one place. Thanks!

Subject: youth takeover :)

Comment: I learned to knit right before seventh grade. I'm in the midst of eighth grade now. I learned to crochet at the end of seventh grade. I'm more common than you think--a person who loves both types of crafts!!
Books and one-craft-only people will say that one is superior. But plenty who do both will say that they like both. I love the methodical, infinite possibilities of knitting and cables. but i love the way crochet quickly works up and works in all directions!
I also love how when i read testimonials and go to yarn shops (or yarn sections) and see plenty of girls and guys around my age. I love to feel like part of a small conspiracy....of the young taking over a traditionally elderly craft >:D

Subject: Crochet and Knit World Peace

Comment: I'm a 16 year old knitter and crocheter, and have been knitting for 2 years, crocheting for one. I know theres suppose to be like the whole hook vs needles rivil thing, but honestly, if you're a person who finds your attention isn't keep past a few project on either, then try learning both. I'll go between a few crochet projects and a few knit projects; I call it stages. I find that knowing both makes me better at both because it really helps spread understanding of how I'm manuvering the yarn. I like different things about each craft, and certain projects are better in either one or the other. So be open minded, give both a shot, you might be surprised. (And yeah, if your curious, I'm posting this on Knitting Pattern Central too)

Subject: crocheting

Comment: i became depressed and agoraphobic . Then i found yarn in the basement and needles my mother said i could have it since she wasn't into it anymore her hands didn't work like they use too. So i thought myself how to crochet and thread crochet. It's theraputic helps me go out and buy yarn and interact with others. Thanks to her i found something that helps me . I've made scarf's and doily's. I watch youtube and learn from watching the pattern. Thanks to teresa she's a great teacher to explain and watch.

Subject: geometry(:

Comment: I am an expert crocheter that also enjoys teaching geometry. Recently, I have created a crochet club for some of my most dedicated and brilliant students. However, I must share a bit of information with you all. Listen closely: Never, I repeat NEVER! crochet during the summer months! It is way too warm and you may overheat. It may be hard to not crochet for so long, and you may even go through withdrawl, but I am a survivor of this and I have fully recovered. Crochet On!!!

Subject: I crochet and knit

Comment: My Mom taught me to crochet When I was about 10. I took it up again at 20. A friend gave me knitting lessons when I was 30 but it was too slow. I taught myself to knit 2 years ago and I have designed several of my own sweaters and cardigans. I am trying to complete 75 hats for kids in an Indian School right now. I can't keep my fingers still when I sit, they must have some yarn on needles or hook.

Subject: Great website!

Comment: My Mom taught me to crochet and a friend taught me to knit-I love both, but always feel most relaxed with crocheting! I have a large collection of vintage crochet patterns and books-what I like doing best! I love this site and always come here to look for something I might not have. Always looking for a new pattern!! I love working with thread the most and when I work with yarn it just doesn't feel right-too used to steel hooks and thread! I always come here for patterns-the best site on the net for patterns!!

Subject: Progress

Comment: I learned to crochet a few years ago and I really struggled so I gave up and turned to knitting. That I got the hang of right away. Soon enough I started to see the similarity between the two. So this year I decided to give crocheting another shot and it came to me soooooo easy. If you're struggling with crocheting try knitting first. And don't forget CPC's sister site 'Knitting Pttern Central'.
