I'm 31. Married for 5 years currently have one yellow lab and our first baby due May 2014! We are so excited as we have been trying for over 2 years to have a baby. I picked up crocheting because I am nocturnal and don't sleep much, but cant stand just to sit around at night. After reading just about every book I could think of I decided I wanted to pick up a hobby. At the time we were trying to get pregnant and EVERYONE around me was successfully pregnant with their 1st and 2nd babies. After driving home one day, annoyed to have gone to Target once again to get the same baby shower gifts as the last 15 times I passed a yarn store. So I stopped in and signed up for a crocheting class. After taking 2 classes, learning the basic stitches and how to follow a pattern I became obsessed with my new hobby. So here I am 4 years and many baby blankets later still loving my hobby and always looking for new patterns and projects. Of course none of my friends are "crafty" and think I am strange for loving to crochet.....but in the same breath tell me they expect a blanket at their baby shower and not a store bought gift.
