About Doddie Greenhill
Please allow me to introduce our featured hobbyist of the day, Doddie Greenhill. She enjoys crocheting afghans and amigurumi. Today Doddie will share some of her crochet memories with us and we’ll showcase three of her crochet projects.
Doddie’s Crochet Memories
Would you share with us one of your earliest memories of crochet?
I have been crocheting since I was eight years old. I learned over the years from my mother, grandmother, and aunt. I would sit for hours watching them create these beautiful pieces of work.
Would you share with us one of your most memorable experiences as a crocheter?
I enjoy creating things for others. I use my crocheting as a therapeutic outlet. My first nursery set was the best accomplishment I had in my crochet life in a very long time.
