Hello from Kansas, USA! My name is Laura and my mother taught me to knit and crochet when I was about 7, 8, 9 and 10 years old. heh Short attention span as a child I guess! Later on I picked up crochet in my late teens due to my love of all things "old fashioned" and my need (yes - NEED) for crocheted doilies. So my first real crochet work was with thread, not yarn! The rest is all history.
I've really admired Vera's passion for both knit and crochet and the versatility she's shown with the projects on her blog. Thanks Vera for encouraging the rest of us to combine and work on projects that combine both knitting and crochet! I'm really looking forward to browsing patterns and deciding if my knit-crochet-along project will be big like a garment, or small like a scarf or shawl. Decisions decisions!
