Celebrating 50 Years!!!


In addition to a wonderful steak dinner at Outback, my husband was very thoughtful on my birthday.


He gave me a gift certificate for JoAnn’s Store. I brought some yarn I have been needing and the pillow for the Red Heart project.  


The second gift I will be enjoying several times in the upcoming year. My wonderful husband (through a subscription) has sent me a the Crochet Define Magazine. I will receive 6 issues in the next twelve months.


The last gift was a crochet book I have been wanting for a while. It is a ultimate collection of crochet techniques, “Crochet Compendium”. It is filled with tutorial’s and projects for the following:

The broomstick lace
Crocheting doilies
Double-ended crochet
Filet crochet
Crochet with fleece
Mosaic Crochet
hairpin Lace
Slip Stitch
Learn to Crochet Socks
Symbol Crochet
Wiggly Crochet
Crochet basics

It was truly a birthday that just kept on giving. But the best part was at half a century, I am still spending my Birthday’s with the Love of My Life.

Look forward to posting projects with all this yarn I have been receiving.

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.



About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
