Recently I began to crochet without ever having done it before. I was sitting at home and one day it all hit me like a ton of bricks. I was thinking what can I learn to do while I'm out of work besides for baking. I was so set on baking and catering only. I would spend days on Facebook trying to promote my page and build clientele.Don't get me wrong I still love to bake because there's nothing more fulfilling than providing food that everyone loves.
I started out watching my aunt crochet as a kid. I would watch her sit there hours on end and create lovely items. She said that it made her relax when she was stressed. Years later I've begun a hobby/skill that she knew so much about. I love it and I'm so happy that it's something I enjoy.
Now all I know how to crochet are hats and some small accessories. I really would like to get into clothing but only for babies. It seems that baby clothing wouldn't take as long and seem to be a little more special. But that's my opinion now. The more I get into crochet I believe that I'm going to find pleasure in one form or another.
Never did I think I would find so much joy in anything other than baking. Now I have something to do while I'm waiting on my next cake order to come in.
