Hi. I just wanted to take a moment and welcome you to my blog.  Crochet is a wonderful hobby, that not only is pleasurable, relaxing, and a great way to reduce stress and tension, but is also fun.  You'll find this site offers something for everyone. Whether a novice, intermediate, or advanced there are free crochet patterns and tips available for everyone's skill.

The Internet offers a host of free crochet patterns and I enjoy finding and sharing them with others. You'll also notice links to the site Free-Crochet.com on the site. Those who've been online for a while may remember Annie's Attic Free Pattern of the Day. Well, Annie's website link changed to her daily free pattern. The patterns did not disappear. In fact, they are hosted at Free-Crochet.com. All you need to do is sign up for a free membership and you can download as many as you want. I share the daily free patterns from Free-Crochet.com as well as other high quality free crochet patterns that I come across.

Not only will you discover plenty of free crochet patterns to keep you busy, but you'll also discover the joy of crochet.  At first, you may feel frustrated as you begin to learn the proper way to hold the crochet hook, or as you work each stitch in an effort to gain uniform tension; however, you will find that practice makes perfect, and as long as you practice your crochet, the perfection will follow.  Never stress out over missed stitches, or uneven tension.  You are learning a new hobby and it will take a while to feel comfortable with your projects.  With practice, you'll soon discover that crocheting really isn't that difficult to learn. Like any new skill, the more you practice, the easier it becomes.
