    I’ve been crocheting since my grandma taught me at 7 years old. I’m trying to think of something you’d find interesting about me. I guess I have to say within my family I’m always right & they hate to admit it but they have to cuz I haven’t been proven wrong yet! My husband finally admitted I’m the voice in his head!!!

    We always seem to remember one thing in life. That’s who taught us the things that stuck with us throughout our lives. I can remember when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I had to rest. Who came to my rescue? My Mom. She said, “I’m going to teach you to knit & that will keep you busy”. I knitted every day & had tons of items for my new little girl. Then came daughter # 2. I knew how to knit so my Italian grandma taught me to crochet. That got me through many sleepless nights. Knitting & crocheting have always been my “therapy”. In the past 20 yrs. I’ve learned to weave. Well, that’s another whole story that has opened another whole world. Traditional weaving, Triangle weaving, Saori weaving, rigid heddle looms, rectangle looms, tapestry, OY!! Just too much. But I learned how to stay busy now that I am retired with 5 grandkids that love whatever I make for them. And thanks to Chandi who creates the most beautiful yarns that fit into every type of creative piece I’m busy making.

    Hmmm… Something interesting about me… My one and only pageant win was when I was 9 years old and won my school’s Miss Sweetheart pageant! My “talent” was poetry reading and I nailed it with Robert Frost’s “Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening”. I was a bit disappointed, though, as the runners-up got boxes of candy and all I got was a lousy tiara. I WANTED CHOCOLATE, DANG IT!

    I just gave one of my shawls to a neighbor who is going through cancer treatments and can’t get warm. It was one that I had made and never worn, just wanted to try the technique.

    I’m not asking for a pat on the back or a medal and a parade…I just want confirmation that this counts as a finished project…(finally on someone’s shoulders) and means I get to start 3 new ones!!!

    Something interesting about me? I was once addicted to drugs and alcohol. I was in a serious state of depression and they seemed to be the only things to numb me. By the grace of God, I met my husband and was saved, and crocheting became the thing that took the place of drugs and alcohol. Whenever I am feeling stressed, anxious, worried, sad, depressed, angry….I can turn to God and sit in a corner with my yarn singing and praying and creating and feel completely at peace in an instant.

    I have yarn ADD…can NOT resist touching it or buying it. It’s all about texture to me. If it doesn’t “feel” right, I don’t buy it! I have a dozen projects in the works. If one isn’t satisfying my senses, I change to a different project.

    I am left handed and I learned to knit in the 4th grade. I realized something was wrong when my knitting didn’t match the pictures so I just adapted my knitting. The patterns had to be wrong, because I wasn’t!!!! I went for several years knitting this way until I came upon a pattern I couldn’t wrap my head around. I sought help from the grandma of one of my best friends. I sat down and knitted with her and she began to laugh and laugh. I had finished a row and then started the next. She said “honey you forgot to turn your work”. No where, in the green “how to book” that I used for reference, did it say to turn your work. I would knit the row and just knit back with the other hand. I never had to purl! So at a very young age I never really followed a pattern completely, I was always making modifications. 🙂

    My mother taught me how to knit and my grandmother taught me how to crochet. For many years I stopped knitting then got back into it w my sister Tracy and our mom. I was working on a sweater for my daughter and was just about to the point of finishing it when our mom passed away on my daughter’s 4th birthday. I put knitting down for several years after that. My sister Tracy got me back into it again by going to local yarn stores in our area and introducing me to yarns online. Chandi, your yarn is amazing. I have made one project with your yarn so far and have a wip for my daughter but packing for a move is pushing knitting to the side once again. I would love to win this package not only as a “house warming gift” for me but I truly love your yarns. Hope I didn’t ramble.

    I’m not sure this is interesting, but it sure tells I could use the $1,000 of your fabulous yarn. I have been home on disability since 2/19/14 3AM with a head pain that feels like a spike through my head. 15 medication regimens, 3 doctors, (including 2 neurologists), tests, tests, and more tests, chiropractor, acupuncture, and have meditation appt this week. The only time I am not in pain is when I am sleeping. So I sit knitting quietly every day. Lots of holiday presents done, entrelac learned and accomplished (lion amazing), skew socks upsized and finally dominated, a few baby blankets (berroco comfort) with matching ugg-like booties (berroco ultra-suede). So until they figure out what this is, i need to re-fill my stash.

    My mother taught me how to crochet when I was young. I made a blanket that ended up being a very odd shape. Lol. I always wanted to learn how to knit but no one in my family knew how. So I went into cross-stitch and then counted cross-stitch. When I was around 36 I decided to teach myself to knit. I got a book and with the help of a co-worker who had been knitting for 40 years, I learned how to knit. I have not stopped since. I knew I would love it. The crocheting comes in handy sometimes for adding trim or those kinds of things. What’s funny is that even though I haven’t crocheted since I was a kid, I never forgot it.

    I started crocheting at the beginning of the year and I love it. I needed a hobby, something to take my mind off of things as well as an outlet for the creativity bubbling in side of me that I didn’t really know what to do with LOL. I love, love, LOVE crochet. I can’t believe how good it makes me feel and in every way–mentally, emotionally, and physically. I mostly crochet smaller projects.
    I am also a preachers wife, mother to 2 boys, owner to one neurotic chaweenie named Monkey, and a lover of chocolate.

    I am an artist, painter/printmaker and I adore your yarn colorways! I am getting married in June and am teaching myself to knit beaded lace by knitting accessory silk shawls for me (instead of a veil), and my brideswomen to wear for the wedding. It will be a more casual, outdoor wedding, and I’m matching up yarn colors with the tropical flower pattern on my groom’s Hawaiian shirt. The ladies will all wear white dresses, with the shawls to bring color, rather than saddling them with yet another bridesmaid dress they’ll never wear again. I am a happy customer so far, and the gift card would help trmendously with our clothing and attendant gift budget….thanks so much! Kristine

    Hi, my name is Laura. I’m a Canadian but I currently live in Denmark. How I got here is definitely something interesting. I met a Danish man online, Facebook actually, and he came to visit me in Canada. We got in a terrible car crash on the day we met, on the way home from the airport. He broke his back, and I had little more than scratches. We had fallen in love as much as you can without seeing one another, but the three days we spent in the hospital changed that to something very real. He healed as fast as only an 18 year old will, and fast forward 6 years, we just celebrated our 6th anniversary in Denmark, where I’ve been living with him for the past 5 years!

    Probably the most interesting thing about me is that I have what’s called Cogan’s Syndrome, and it made me go deaf, completely, in 4 days when I was 27 years old. I had to wait 8 months for a cochlear implant and that’s when I got serious about knitting. I now have my implant, and “almost” normal, though artificial, hearing but I still am a VERY avid knitter. =)

    I am halfway through my college degree in Office Administration since I can’t work in my previous field with my hearing impairment.

    I also moved from New England to North Carolina after going completely deaf and will probably move to the coast of NC or SC in 5 years or so. It’s just so beautiful out there, why not live in paradise? Especially when it’s only 3 hours from where you already live?

    I first tried to learn to knit when I was about 10. My parents hired a lady from our church to give me lessons. But I kept losing stitches! I could never quite understand what I was doing and how the needles were creating the stitches. It was when my tutor commented that I’d need to know crochet in order to fix an error I’d made that the light bulb went off in my head. Lessons stopped shortly after, and the following year I found my mom’s old G hook and 1970’s beginner’s crochet books. I taught myself how to crochet and have been happily creating beautiful pieces in the more than 20 years since.

So I’m a backwards knitter, with an insatiable yarn addiction.

    Hello Chandi,

    Telling about myself is a thing I rather not like to do…..
    I’m a shy person and sometimes find it very difficult to keep up with the challanges this life brings me. But I try to make the most of it. When it concerns my children I’m a fighter and all I wish for is that I was able raise them believing in themselfs; being openminded towards the world and the peoples they (will) meet . But most of all that they will treat the peoples with respect and will be respected likewise.

    In my sparetime I’m playing music in the local band, do some gardening but mostly a lot of knitting, crochet, sewing and making bobbinlace.
    Always more than one project at hand ! Addiction ??? At least never a dull moment…..
    Thanks to internet I surf a lot lately and find so many beautiful sites about yarns and designs. Getting in touch with new techniques is awesome. As we say overhere (The Netherlands) “Your’re never to old to learn” !

    I’ve got a whishingbasket full of designs and beautiful yarns ( never enough of course ) and realy think a day should have more hours …..

    I learned to knit over 10 years ago, but didn’t knit much more than scarves for several years – moved and met a wonderful new friend who also knit and we now challenge each other to try new techniques and more ambitious project!

    I’m an avid knitter and I’m now working on my first knitting designs. I have spent the last few years traveling Europe, spending much of the time in Italy and Greece. I love going to yarn shops in different parts of the world and seeing how other people knit differently than me. One of my favourite comments from a knitter in Denmark was, “Watching you knit is like watching someone on t.v.!” This because I’m an English knitter, which looks very strange to knitters in Denmark.

    I love knitting for so many reasons – seeing the pattern and colors unfold, making gifts for those I care about, and it just plain makes me happy!! It’s what I do with my coffee in hand each morning, and usually what I do to wind down at night. But I really hold my craft closest to my heart because it is what pulled me through and out of a very sad marriage. When I was lonely, it was my friend – the one I spent hours with as I worked over in my mind how I and my 2 girls could get out. Today, I’m remarried and my girls are thriving. They have a positive male role model who shows them daily what a true husband is. He supports my knitting, and has even dabbled in it himself by knitting leather cord. Knitting helped me to make a plan and keep my sanity to find a new and happy life!

    I found you on Facebook and am absolutely delighted by my first order of your yarn!

    I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was 10 years old. I am 53 years old now. Crafting (cross-stitch, Hardanger, beading, and knitting) has always been a way for me to cope with the pain of the disease. When the disease spread to my feet and hands about 9 years ago, I thought my crafting days were over, but caring and creative hand therapists made special hand splints so I can still do all my crafts! Knitting, especially, has been a life saver for me. It keeps me occupied while waiting at doctor appointments. It wards off bouts of depression and distracts me from my pain. And in the last 2 years, I have found a bunch people who are as fiber freaky as I am. They all are survivors in their own right with generous souls and who love to laugh. They have brought me out of my hermit shell…for which I am eternally grateful. <3

    When asked where I am from I state “I’m from Canada” because I have been all across the country and until I was an adult I never stayed in one place for more than 4 years. I have been to every province as well as one of the 3 territories, so my goal is to get to the other two. The most time I have spent outside of Canada was a weekend trip several hours south of the border in the U.S.

    Interesting? Hmmm… Like most here, my grandma taught me knitting and crochet…made mittens on double pointers when I was 8. I’ve loved yarn ever since. I’m fascinated with patterns because I love math. Crazy!! Get to mix both and end up with a fantastic gift for someone (and sometimes myself!).

    I tend to have more projects in my que than time. I have three adorable grandchildren that I love to crochet and knit for as well as family and friends. My passion is fiber arts. I love to crochet and knit but I also love the patterns, stitches and of course the lovely yarns that are available.

    I taught myself to knit back in Sept 2010. I went from a scarf in seed stitch to 1/2 fingered gloves. For some reason things just clicked with me after I figured out my tension and how to read a pattern. I have sold some of my hand knit items, but have been knitting for fun as of late. I never had anyone in the family to teach me home ec. I pretty much taught myself how to cook, sew by hand and with a machine, knit, and crochet. I feel like I came on the scene a little late being in my 30s, but I also feel very proud of myself for being self taught and learning these trades by researching and just trial and error. My hope and dream is to be able to use my talents and skills to startup my own business someday. I follow your blog and countless others to gather information and try to glean what I can. I am enjoying watching everyone’s journey, and looking forward to joining in sometime in the near future.

    Well this is Domestic Violence Prevention Month and let me tell u my survivor story. First of all I have a Master Degree in Education but was battered while disabled after a car accident. I became useless to himso he left me for dead then used the courts and a for hire counselor to lie in court despite numerous phd level testimony based in facts. Im a battered non custodial mother. Every time I try to get a court order enforced he uses his extensive monetory resources to batter me with the Texas courts which are not known for being just. My two children have tried to tell they are being abused but are not allowed and threatened. My eldest was horribly mentally abused that at 18 AFTER 6 YEARS OF NEVER being allowed to see me she attempted suicide many times while in his care. He disowned her at 18 and she married the first man she met at age 19. Her father never even offer to help her with college even though he is wealthy. She is lost and alienated. My youngest us not alienated but nad at me. She also has begged the local domestic violence organizations to help and has even attempted as suicide at his prompting. There us a court order he got signed without a trial or my signature that is so wacked it is unconstitutional but then this is Texas. He doesnt follow it but I cant tell the court unless I pay his attorney $5000 first. I was on disability and told I would never walk again but after being levied ch oink ld support at 45 percent of my $1000 income without a trial I spent years reabilitating myself and going back to work slowly. Many people and organizations have helped me but there us no help for using a Texas court to batter women and children. I am would use the yarn to use my talents as ann artist and the crochet my Grandmother taught me to make beautiful wearable peices I can sell and pay off his lawyer so I can go to court and rescue my ither daughter. Although I have since gone back to work full time he devastated me finacially and have been enduring this court ordered abuse for 8 years after 13 years of high end abuse im still here serving children in my profession but unable to talk to or hug my own. My story can be confirmed and I am writing a book but er right now I could use the yarn to generate money. My youngest thinks I dont see her because I dont love her anymore because that us what she us being told. He us dening me access and in contempt if a court irder even if it is unjust and unconstitutional. I am a survivor.

    Hello, I started to crochet in 2012 at the age of 27. I took 1 basic Crochet Class in Michael’s (that taught the slip knot, chain and single crochet) and learned the rest through YOUTUBE. I took an interest in this art as a relaxer for the stress of full time working single parenting. IT WORKED!!!!!! My oldest is Autistic and I use the money I earn for my projects to donate to his school. I also have the talent to sing and I use it to Praise and Worship my Lord and Savior.

I live in a log home in the woods, surrounded by birds, various little critters like chipmunks etc., and deer, wild turkeys, and snowshoe hares. I love to sit on my front porch and knit, and the chickadees fly in and land on my hands while I knit. How can you beat that!

    Not sure if I have anything interesting about me, but I’ll give it a go. I am a massive geek/nerd who plays Dungeons and Dragons. I snort when I start laughing really hard and I couldn’t stop the last D&D session. One of my friends laughed so hard he was crying, I think he was crying in the end cause it hurt to laugh. lol I would love to crochet some geeky things eventually and I would love to learn how to knit. Your videos helped me learn to crochet, so hopefully one day you can teach me to knit too.

    I am a self taught crocheter. I watched a girl do it at work one day, went to the yarn shop tried and failed lots until one day it just became second nature.

    I was a total tomboy with horses, goats, chickens, etc. etc. until my favourite goat in the world (Myrtle) and I had an accident and one of her horns went through my right (dominant) hand. My Mom (now deceased) came to stay to help….kinda fun but….anyways, my Physio said that the biggest thing to do was exercise that hand. After 30 years of never having a clue, my Mom taught me to knit and cross stitch. My hand fully recovered due to this wonderful therapy – I taught myself to crochet – and have never, ever given knitting or crocheting up. I’m a complete yarn hogger and everyday, I say thank you to my Mom – she made me!!

    A little over a year ago, a raggedy little hen strayed into our yard. After a couple days of feeding her, she decided she was one of the family. Whenever I went on the porch, she would sit in one rocking chair and I’d be in the other, and she’d just jabber away while I was crocheting or drawing. I’d respond like someone would to a baby, but if I stopped talking, she’d saunter off. I think I was her best friend.

    I am what my husband calls a “crazy knitter” and I love. I plan to keep on knitting the rest of my life. I guess the one interesting thing about would be that I don’t use shampoo on my hair, just baking soda and vinegar. I guess that isn’t super interesting but there you go 🙂

    I learned to knit first but I was AWFUL at it! Instead of giving up on yarn forever, I picked up a hook to give crochet a try. It clicked instantly! Although sometimes I see a knitted pattern I wish I could make, I love crochet and everything about it!

    A couple of years ago at our club’s All-American Bonspiel, I achieved one of the most rare sports accolades in curling. It’s called an 8-ender – when all 8 rocks count for points. It’s statistically rarer than a no-hitter in baseball and a hole-in-one in golf. My team won the game 16 – 0 and we stole ALL of the points including the 8-ender, which makes it even more rare. We are the first team from the Bowling Green Curling Club to have an 8-ender. To put it in perspective, an acquaintance at another club got an 8-ender in his rookie year. His skip (the team leader) had been curling for 50 years and had never seen one, let alone scored one. My team and I from the bonspiel are in the Curling Hall of Fame.

    Interesting? hmmmmmm…..I own my own chainsaw and was the first woman in my family to purchase my own home on my own. Hence, the reason for the chainsaw….lol Cut down and trimmed up a lot of trees, rebuilt my back deck and yes, cut the main stairs off of it with my chain saw! Refurbished the stairs into shorter steps for off the side of the deck, added brand new railing and made corner wood benches for the deck. This led to resurfacing the concrete basement on the outside, and many other things a lot of women wouldn’t like to tackle on their own….LOL I also crawled under the crawl space of my older/new home and put in insulation…..THAT was NOT FUN!!!! LOL OH….did I mention I also LOVE LOVE LOVE to KNIT (self taught) and CROCHET, and QUILT, and GARDEN!!!! HUGS!

    When I was 5 and my sister was 10, Our mother crocheted all 3 of us matching dresses in the hideous colors of orange and brown ( the fashion colors of the 1970’s ) . My sister and I were not thrilled. lol but looking back on that picture 35+ years later The dresses were really cute. and I crochet now following my mothers footsteps. I couldn’t be more proud of those dresses that my mom spent hours on making for us. Its funny how our perspective changes over time.

    My mother was always knitting, reading or quilting. All three of her girls now do something similar. I crochet, my oldest sister does counted cross stitch and the middle sister knits.

    I can’t stand to sit with nothing to do. So crocheting serves a great purpose.

    Crocheting runs in our family. I have pieces crocheted seemingly out of gossamer fine thread by my great grandmother. Both grandmothers, my mom and aunts crochet beautiful work. I’m the rebel knitter. Taught myself when I was a kid and have been a dedicated winter knitter ever since. For some reason I turn to crochet in the warmer months, but must knit when it starts to turn cool. Several years ago I discovered hand dyed and spun yarns and have been hooked ever since. Your colorways make me drool! My daughter and her teenage daughter are also great fans. We’re glad we found you!

    I learned to knit and crochet, sew at age 10. It was a passion for years! In my 30-40’s i was preoccupied with life. Then I had a life threatening experience, was laid up for months. I thought I would go crazy. I took up knitting again. It literally saved my mind! Going strong still!
