My Etsy Preview

I taught myself to crochet last year. I wanted a new hobby and thought maybe crocheting was something I could do. I went to the craft store and found a kit. It had a few hooks, some other little accessories and a how-to book. I picked a few pretty balls of yarn and went home to see what I could make.

It turned out I could make a wicked chain, but that was about it. All I have to say is thank goodness for You Tube! I quickly figured out what I was doing and starting making a few projects. After a few months I realized that I couldn't keep making stuff for the 4 of us. So I moved on to making a boatload of Christmas presents. But after Christmas, then what? That's when I decided I would open my own Etsy store.

Creative Castle
I am quite excited to announce that my store is now open. But before you go clicking away at the above button, I will warn you that the store is still empty. Unfortunately I fell a little behind and still have a few loose ends to tie up. Yes, pun intended!

But I will give you a preview of some of the things that will be in my store shortly.

Do you have an animal lover in your house?

How about a frog pillow!

In my store you will find things for all ages

Congratulations on your Etsy store! I recently taught myself to crochet too, with the help of a library book & you tube! I love it because I can do it sitting on the couch at night watching TV! I love the frog pillow - good luck with your shop!

I'm amazed at your creative animals! How adorable! I had an urge to learn to knit a few years ago, so I went to a yarn shop and a very, very nice lady who came here from Russia, tried to teach me. "Tried" being the operative word. After watching a billion videos and getting help from co-workers I did catch on. It's very relaxing and therapeutic, isn't it? I never got beyond winter scarves though. You, on the other hand, are talented!

One more late-comer from Friday Follow-

Nice to meet you, I hope you'll follow me back.
