I have just started a brand new website: Fun Crochet!
I am so excited about this site, and will begin a video series this weekend. You can view the site here: http://www.funcrochet.com
I have been crocheting since I was ten years old, and have been having FUN every since!
Look for plenty of free patterns, stitch directory, and guidelines for converting vintage crochet patterns to modern terminology!

I also like to knit so there will be plenty of tips for converting knitting and crochet patterns and vice versa.
