Crochet Obsession Turned Passion
I have spent the better part of my crocheting years doubting my creativity to the point of not doing it at all for 6 months, pretty sure that was the worse 6 months of my life. To feel so much passion or more likely a complete healthy obsession about crocheting can be hard to explain to others until they learn how. As a teacher of this craft, I always feel very proud of each and every student, like they have been invited into this crazy world of mine to enjoy this never ending joy ride. As a current owner of a yarn shop, I now get to spend 5 days a week right next to thousands of skeins of yarn. This was a huge concern for me before jumping into the business, honestly was not sure I could control myself that close to it or even worse would I get so over stimulated with it that I would grow tired of it. Both issues certainly have not come up in the past 5 years, yes this means I am still open and crocheting. I will confess there have been a few times that I would get a twinge if a favorite yarn would sell out quickly until I realized I can order more.
One of the best compliments ever received is when a local artist came in to my shop and asked me if I would be interested in putting up a display of crochet at a local coffee shop as she had heard of me and my work, shock was the first reaction followed by an open mouth and then embarrassment. Living in a small town of less than 50,000 people I am always running into someone I have taught how to crochet, like it is my purpose here to share this knowledge both in person and online. Never dreamed that this little obsession would lead me where I am today.
