Hi, I'm Megan!
I'm here to bring you a variety of free crochet patterns! Many of my patterns use just one skein of yarn and are easy projects to pick up and put down. That's because I'm also a stay at home mom of two wonderfully active children and a wife to my loving husband who has brain cancer. Life is busy! But let's all take some time to crochet, ok?
I learned to crochet back in high school when my friend, Paula, came home from camp (having learned there herself) and showed me how. I remember going to a craft store and picking out some blue yarn, and making my very first and very shoddy set of mittens and a scarf. Fortunately, through time, practice and many blogs and YouTube videos, my skills have improved drastically from those first, less-than-perfect pieces. Throughout my high school and college years I picked up crocheting as a hobby periodically, usually in the winter months, and stuck mostly to scarves. Occasionally I would make mittens or hats for myself, but that was about the size of my crochet repertoire.
Now skip ahead several years to the final months of my first pregnancy. I was in the stage where sleep completely eluded me due to the sheer discomfort of laying down. Sometime in those deliriously sleep deprived hours, I stumbled across Sarah Zimmerman's blog (www.repeatcrafterme.com) and a pattern for an adorable crocheted snowman cocoon for a newborn girl. I decided to make it for my December due baby-along with several other hats-in eager anticipation of her arrival.
I went back to work in my research career after she was born, but I found myself wanting to stay home with my daughter. Long story short, I stumbled into crochet pattern designing and haven't looked back.
Thank you for being here and supporting my little family. Every time you visit my blog it helps me to be able to work from home around the people I love most. I hope that you find patterns that you love!
