      Hello.
      My nana taught Me how to crochet when I was 9 I have always loved it. She never really knew how to read patterns. She showed me how to crochet by site. She is a huge inspiration. She loves alpaca fiber. She is allergic to so much . I would love to make her something specail with it if I win.
      I hope you choose just the right person.
      Also I learned how to knit at age 10 by my aunt. And I’ve only recently picked it up again trying to learn more difficult things. So all in all I have been crafting for 16 years.
      Thank you so much for giving me a chance to enter this giveaway.

      I learned how to crochet the basics by watching my Mom. My skill has advanced by learning how to read a chart and lately by watching you tube tutorial videos. I no longer like reading patterns. Following a chart works best for me!

      My grandma taught me when I was 9 or 10. I have been crocheting on and off ever since! You actually taught me what little knitting I know. I watched your beginner video last summer and made a whole swatch, LOL! I put the pointy sticks away and went back to my comfort zone!

      In college I found a crochet needle so I bought a little yarn and, making up my own stitches, made small crochet animals to relieve the stress. Now, many decades later I wanted to know how knitting and crochet “work”, so I looked up books on it. Totally confused, I looked up videos on you tobe and foind your basic instruction lessonx on knitting and crochet and it all finally made sense. I made hats and scarves for a few friends and a baby blanket for my best friend’s new son. Now I am learning to read beginning patterns to begin the next phase of my adventure in yarn! Thank you for your help and encouragement.

    My grandfather’s partner taught my sister and I the basics of a variety of fiber arts when we were younger, carding, spinning, weaving on a loom, and I learned crochet from her when I was around 10. It took a couple years to click, and I didn’t really start putting much effort into it until I was in my early 20s, but I can’t see my life without it now. <3 Knitting I'm self-taught and it's definitely still a work in progress hahaha.

    I taught myself how to knit and crochet. My grandmother use to do it and tried teaching me when I was younger, I just couldn’t get it. Now that I’ve learned how to do both I wish she was still here so I could sit with her. I wish I could learn every stich and pattern she knew. Luckly my great aunt gave me her knitting needles, that’s what inspired me to learn how to knit. I love knitting more then crocheting. I’ve also picked up needle tatting as well.

    My mom taught me how to crochet when I was about 8 years old, but I got self conscious about it because she laughed at the way my index finger pointed up while holding the yarn. I taught myself how to knit when I was 12 because I wanted to make my best friend a scarf when she moved away. 🙂

    Oh dear, such gorgeous yarn!
    I can thank my Mother for my love of knitting an crocheting 🙂 She taught me how to knit/crochet, all the basics, how to read patterns, how to decipher patterns (because many times they were explained in foreign languages), how to write patterns after seeing something nice, etc
    All the rest I learned from books and the internet 🙂

    Thank you for the giveaways!

    Mommy taught me to crochet when I was about 7 years old. For Christmas one year I got a “learn to knit” kit. It came with SKINNY needles (no idea the size but way too small to learn with, and the yarn was baby yarn) ? However, she & I followed the instructions and learned to knit and pearl a square. Years later (I was the mom of 2 by then) she decided to teach herself how to really knit. In a few weeks she was knitting sweaters for my brother, my sister & me; baby and toddler clothes for our kids. Mommy could do ANYTHING. She was also a seamstress. She made all our clothes growing up, including all my formals and my wedding and bridesmaids dresses. I can knit & pearl but that’s pretty much all. I’m just so much faster at crochet!

    I learned how to knit in Brownies when I was about 6 and knitted a few basic things over the years teaching myself. Two years ago 8 tookj up knitting again with some help from my knitting group and am loving it!

    I learned to crochet when I was 23. A group of friends took a class together. I crocheted lots of blankets but was inspired by my stepfather’s mother to make filet crochet lace. I truly love that but I have no use for lace and don’t know anyone who does.

    I actually had to learn how to knit and crochet by using books and videos! I started my love affair with yarn/fiber crafts at 16, and haven’t turned back. Using YouTube videos from the knitwitch, and a website I can’t seem to find anymore, I opened up the tote filled with scraps of yarn and needles and hooks from my great grandmother, and practiced and practiced. I LOVE your yarn and would have so much fun using this yarn to teach my friends and my younger sister how to knit. Spread the love, right?

    I was taught to knit by a group of coworkers. I work at a museum and am in charge of the Living History (I teach period skills and trades). There was a workshop for knitting, which I had never done and so I had to sit in on it and decided to participate. I was hooked, even though my first dishcloth resembled something like a kite and stingray had a baby.

    Recently you taught me to knit!! I was taught how to knit as a little girl at school, and my grandma helped me a little. But I really didn’t care for it (I knit so tight that I couldn’t slip my stitches of the needle). So I never did it again until I rediscovered it a few months ago at age 31. I found a really cute knitkit for a bunny egg cosy, and when I googled for tutorials I found your YouTube tutorials! I was surprised by how relaxing and enjoyable I found knitting now, while actually making something useful with my hands at the same time. So thank you!!

    When I was 13 years old, a lady (Phyllis Davidson) at church held crochet classes at her home. My mother took me every Monday night for the duration.
    When I was in my 20’s, I wanted to learn how to knit, so I bought a book and tried to teach myself, but I couldn’t understand it, so I went back to crochet. Several years later, I tried again, with the same results. I do not give up easily though. Only temporarily. A few years later, I again tried to knit and finally figured it out. There is no stopping me now!

But I have her needles now… and I love knowing she created with them for years and now I’m creating with them! ?

    Hey There!! My name is Mireya Dominguez. I’m from Dallas,TX and I love to both knit and crochet. I first started to crochet around September of 2015 all on my own by just watching YouTube videos. I decided to teach myself to crochet because I was pregnant at the time and wanted to make my baby some cool baby booties like the ones all over Pinterest LOL. My first booty was not a success, it came out to be about the size of a dog foot. How funny is that, but I got the hang of it and loved it. I then decided to teach myself to knit around April of 2016 because I wanted to make cool socks. And guess whose video i was watching to help me learn, YOURS!!! The “How to knit for beginners, even if your clueless” lol believe me i was pretty clueless. but with that video i was able to get the hang of it and started with dishcloths then worked my way to knit socks. I actually used one of your fingering weight yarn for my socks, the WILDFLOWERS RESILIENT SUPER WASH MERINO SOCK YARN. Let me tell you, that yarn is so soft!!!Now I’m in love with knitting and couldn’t be any happier. 🙂

    My mother taught me crochet after I had pestered her to for a long time. I was about 7or 8 at the time. The thing that made it difficult is she is left handed and I am right handed. She taught me by having me sit across from her like looking into a mirror. She also taught me to knit but I didn’t/don’t have much affinity for it. I also learned the one and only pattern that my mother’s mother knew and crocheted her whole life. I spent one summer learning it and it was a year before she passed away. I’m now making afghans using her pattern for my nieces and nephews. I thought it was an appropriate way to connect them to their great grandmother.

    I taught myself to knit & crochet one really bored summer vacation when I was about 12 years old. I found a huge box of craft supplies for $2 at a yard sale – that was a week’s allowance back then – and it was so heavy I walked it back home balanced on the seat of my bike. There were a bunch of needles & hooks, yarn, stuffing, and a couple of how-to books for beginners with patterns for stuffed toys & Barbie clothes. I was stubborn & kept at it, day after day, until I finally got a pair of Jack & Jill dolls that were only a little lopsided to show my friends when school started back again.

    My mom taught me how to knit when I was about 13 or so on a Winter Storm in Montreal. Eventually I picked up again as a young adult and can’t stop. I just love fibre, natural yarns, colour, and you add to my addiction! Can’t wait to knit with what I ordered!

    Hi Chandi I learnt to crochet from my Nana. She was a prolific crocheter and after she died (I was nineteen at the time), we found a baby blanket for every grand daughter in one of her cupboards. I still have mine – though very well worn, thirty years later.

    My sister-in-law taught me when I was about 12, but it didn’t take. I learned just enough to do it in a school play. Then I taught myself with the help of a Nici Beason video, but that didn’t last either.

I made socks for my husband, many scarves, several hats, and I’m working on my first sweater now!

    My nana taught me how to knit when I was about 6. I’m a lefty and she wasn’t, so she plopped me onto her lap and held my hands in hers, repeating the motions over and over. I now knit right-handed 🙂

    Both my nana and my mom tried to teach me to crochet over the years, but nothing really stuck. I taught myself with the help of YouTube videos and other online resources, about 7 years ago. I crochet left-handed.

    In the seven years since I’ve been learning to crochet and knit seriously, I’ve become an enthusiastic yarn addict.

    I taught myself!! (But really, is anyone an island? 😉 )

    Books got me started learning:

    “The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs,” and “Crochet Border Designs,” by Linda P. Schapper,
    “75 Exquisite Trims in Thread Crochet,” by Caitlin Sainio,
    “The Knitter’s Book of Knowledge,” by Debbie Bliss, and
    “750 Knitting Stitches: The Ultimate Knit Stitch Bible.”

    Between those, I have plenty of stitches to practice and play around with. And the many YouTubers and online knitters and crocheters were instrumental at certain points in clearing up points of lingering confusion. 🙂

    When I was a young teenager, a close friend of my mother’s taught me how to crochet, which I liked and did off and on through the years, but mostly stuck to cross stitch. When I first picked up knitting, I taught myself from tutorials on the internet, and was instantly hooked! It’s now pretty much my exclusive craft.

    My mom, her mother, and her sister tried to teach my sister and I when we were young. I attempted a large granny square afghan when I was about 11, it ended up with 5 corners and looked really bad. I didnt pick up a hook again until I moved across the US. I guess I wanted to feel connected. In the ladt 10 years I have made several blankets, one fits a full size bed. I have trouble with patterns.

    My Grandma gave me my first E size crochet hook when I was 3 and taught me how to chain. When I was about 7, and had mastered chains, she tried taco by me how to do rows, but she was left handed and I was right handed. She passed away when I was 9 and I desperately wanted to learn more the older I got. I finally started looking at pictures and old blankets she’d made and figured it out slowly when I was becoming a teenager. By the time I was old enough to drive I was learning abbreviations and teaching myself to read patterns. It’s now been 30 years since she gave me that first hook and I’ve inherited her entire set and refuse to use new ones. I’ve also taught myself to knit over the last 8 years and I’ve made some incredible lace with sewing thread and a size 12 steel hook. Things that far surpass what I ever saw my Grandma do. I’m sure she’s incredibly proud of what I’ve accomplished because of the love of what she instilled in me at a very young age.

    Good luck everyone!! My mother tried to teach me how to knit when I was young but I could just not get the hang of it. So missing her terribly one day a few winters ago (she pass away in 2004) I took to youtube and the internet and found the basics. Then I joined a knitting group in my town and have learned more from there. I have since subscribed to a few you tube sites, including expression fiber arts LOL and have learned some more. Still have a lot more to learn as I am mostly comfy with the basics. Have a great day everyone!!!

    My grandmother taught me how to crochet a starting chain when I was about 8. She would make afghans and I would make chains with her scrap yarn. It wasn’t until recently when one of the last of her afghans (after about 30 years) had really fallen apart, that I decided to learn it myself and make afghans for my family. No one thought I was serious. But through Pinterest and youtube and many EFA inspired posts, I have become pretty successful! I hope my Gram is watching from heaven and is proud that she inspired me to do this!

    I learned to crochet when I was 8 or 9. My mom didn’t have time to teach me. A boy in my class (that mom babysat) said he knew how. We took mom’s supplies and hid on a bean bag behind the loveseat. Made clothes for my barbies. The look on her face when she caught us.

    I learned to knit when I was 7-8 yo, by a favorite babysitter. She would put us all to bed (my 2 brothers and myself) and after getting my brothers in bed, she would teach me to knit so long as I didn’t make any excessive noise, being out of bed past bedtime, and I didn’t tell my folks that I had been up late.

    I learned to crochet when I was 10 from an Aunt who saw me knitting. She said knitting was for “old people” and set to teaching me to crochet. I in turn, taught my grandmother to crochet! And then to knit as well.

    As always, what a beautiful yarn giveaway. I learned to knit from both my grandmothers. My German grandmother, Oma, tried to teach me continental knitting but I just got confused. Then my French-Canadian grandmother, Memere, taught me English style and that I was able to do. Once I grew up and picked up knitting again as an adult, I found continental to be more satisfying and that is what I use nowadays.

I ask my mother to teach me and she was the one who started off making chains. I learn to crochet for my Barbi doll I made lots of little blankets for her and Ken.

    I taught myself to crochet when I was 7 or 8 years old. All I could afford was crochet thread and a small hook. I learned how to crochet by following the pictures in a book. My first projects were doilies. I later taught myself how to knit, tat, embroider, cross stitch, etc. I will be 60 in May and have crafted all my life. My favorite has always been crochet. And, thanks to the internet and sites like this, I have learned many new techniques and have experimented with new yarns and textures. Making beautiful things never grows old.

    I am a self-taught crocheter and knitter……started when I was 17 and that was 48 years ago! Although I didn’t knit or crochet continuously throughout those years, I picked it up again about 3 years ago when my oldest granddaughter was born. I have crocheted everyday since that time!! It is my “me” time, my relaxing time, my reflection time. I absolutely love it! It is a special treat to use high-end beautiful yarn like yours! Thank you so much for providing such a high-quality product! You have the best job in the world! 🙂

    Hi Chandi!
    This hoard looks amazing! My nanny taught me to crochet in grade school but I only ever made one little coaster. About fifteen years later I taught myself to knit from a book.

    No one. I think I was introduced to the concept of knitting in like second or third grade, but forgot about it when I lost interest. Then in 2015 I was looking for new crafts, and decided to pick up crochet, solely from a book. Then I switched from that to knitting also from a book. I like knitting more, except for the afghan/tunesian crochet stitch.
    This is probably why my knitting is so dysfunctional compared to everyone else I’ve ever seen. I tried to do the holding the working yarn in one hand and I just can’t, so I have this weird slow method of switching my right hand from the needle to the yarn. I think I’m getting the hang of the continental method though. Work in progress.

    Hi Chandi,

    As a child, I never knew my mother but I spent 1 month a year with my maternal grandparents in the mountains of N.M. on the Mescalero Apache Reservation. I learned a myriad of crafts from my grandmother including knitting and crocheting. I developed a love for all things natural from my grandfather as well as a desire to learn. I think that is why I am drawn to your yarns. The vivid natural correlations you provide for your colors are fabulous. I am a Certified Aromatherapist and practice Contemporary Healthcare. I am a true believer in crafts as therapy.

    My mother taught me the basic crocheting stitches when I was about 12-13 years old. A good friend taught me to knit when I was in my late 20’s. I knitted a pair of slippers and then dove into a sweater kit from Mary Maxim with a kitten figure knitted into the back. I still have the pattern somewhere. I know how to make tatted lace, I quilt, I embroider…. you name it, I have probably at least tried it. Love the feel of the silk/wool yarns. Keep up the good work. You have a customer for life.

    Hello.
    My nana taught me how to crochet at 9-10 she didn’t know patterns . She crocheted by site. And it helped me learn to expand my horizons as I got older. She can’t crochet anymore because it hurts her hands. She’s such a wonderful person. She’s allergic to many things and alpaca isn’t one of them. I’ve not been able to afford to buy such a lovely fiber. If I won I would make her a shawl or something nice. I also was taught at 10 how to knit by my aunt and I’ve only recently picked it back up again. So I’ve been crafting for over 16 years.
    I did comment before but it didn’t post. So if this is the second comment please forgive me.
    Please choose who needs the most.
    Have a great day.

    Hi Chandi,

    Love your blog entry, I was refereed to your page by a friend that it’s always giving me new Ideas of how to crochet best, honestly I haven’t tried knitting (yet) due to lack of time. The one that taught me how to crochet was my mother when I was a child, I used to watch her make center pieces, dresses, mantels, and even duvets, I picked it back 2.5 years ago after reading about it in a series of book name knitting in the city book 1.5 Neanderthal Marries Human, and honestly, with all the stressed that i was going through at work and in my personal life, Crocheting was a life savior, and learning to love the yarn once again was a comfort.

    Hi Chandi! Love love love your channel and site & blog! My mom tried to teach me to crochet as a kid, but I’m left handed and she is not, so after lots of frustration we both threw in the yarn so to speak, and she taught me to paint and work with clay instead. I ended up deciding I was going to learn to crochet because I really wanted to make things for the Fisher house kids. Fisher house is a place where families of Veterans can stay while their loved one is recovering or being treated for injuries/illness. Similar to Ronald McDonald house. Lots of the kids who are there are scared and confused and all they know is mommy or daddy is hurt or sick and they have to stay at the hospital. They live there sometimes for weeks or months. I lived this when my husband came home from Iraq hurt, and wanted to give the kids something special to help them get thru a real hard time. So I watched your YouTube videos, and bought a kit with some hooks and materials, and spent a whole year learning. Then I decided that I wanted to learn to knit. No one in my family does. But I wanted to make knitted knockers for breast cancer fighters, since I had a lumpectomy a few years ago and received one. So I watched your channel and cast on last summer and have been knitting away since! So I suppose you could say both YOU AND I, taught me to crochet and knit!

    A friend in a needlework group (we met at each other’s homes once a month) taught me at a needlework convention about 17 years ago, then I promptly forgot how to do it once I got home. Fast forward to 2011, when I was bored and looking for a new crafting outlet. YouTube taught me, then, and it stuck. I’m currently in my first afghan CAL and loving it.

    I always remember my grandmother knitting all the time and making beautiful baby blankets for all the babies in the family. When she passed away, all her knitting needles and tools were passed on to me even though I didn’t knit. I thought that I would honor my grandmother by learning how to knit using her needles and carry on this wonderful craft. I taught myself how to knit with books, videos, and by trial and error. I think of my sweet grandmother every time I pick up my yarn and needles and it brings me a sense of calm and peace. Winning some of your beautiful yarn would make knitting even more special.

    My neighbor taught me crochet basics when I was in early adolescence, but it was difficult because she was a lefty & I’m not. Years later I took those basics & a Vanna White baby afghan book & relearned it. I later taught myself knitting & learned how to knit socks when I was confined to bed for nearly six weeks
