I don't now, but I did... one day when I have time I'll get into it again. When I was 16, I spent a summer making an afghan. It was just a whole bunch of granny squares of all different colours. Then I crocheted them all together and PRESTO! One afghan that I still have!

I used to crochet and loved it - I don't do it anymore because I just don't have the extra time. I would love to pick it up again. I made a huge afghan that I am still very proud of, it is stunning. I let my parents have it and they keep it on the bed in one of the guest rooms. I have made a bunch of other blankets and stuff, but the one I gave to my parents was just huge.

I crochet as well. I don't do it often but I pick up a needle when I have the time. My grandmother taught me when I was a little girl and its sort of like riding a bike. Once you learn you never forget.
I have made many afghans, pot holders, hats and scarves (I made a bunch of these one Christmas and gave them away as gifts) baby blankets when there is a birth in the family. I think thats about it
My eyesight is getting bad so I don't do it as often as I would like

I make a few things every year. I like to crochet in the winter. I have made blankets years ago but just don't take on those big projects any more. This year for christmas I made 3 beanie hats, 1 scarf and a really really cool tote bag that I made using old plastic sacks ( walmart bags). I have a baby blanket started that I have been piddeling around with, I was making it for a girlfriend of mine but she went and had a girl... I somehow thought it was going to be a boy...

I like to crochet...It helps me think.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Currently I'm working on a baby blanket and a scarf also, and I've
already made two pot holders for my mom for Christmas. :)

I crotchet from time to time. For my first project I got in over my head and started a huge blanket that I still have not finished it, and that was like 4 years ago! Now that I have read this I might pull it out again... And my grandmother is teaching me how to knitt as well.
