Lisa’s Crochet Memories
Would you share with us one of your earliest memories of crochet?
When my children were young, I couldn’t always afford nice clothes. They always had one-of-a-kind crocheted sweaters and hats, though.
Would you share with us one of your memories of becoming a crochet designer?
My first pattern (and still my favorite) was a horny toad plushie over 4 years ago, and last year it went viral.
Would you share with us one of your most memorable experiences as a crochet designer?
This year I published a book of Texas crochet patterns, a goal I’ve had for a while.
