It All Started With a Cupcake...

I am often asked about my crochet history and since it is Throw Back Thursday, let's take a look back
Although my grandmother had wanted to teach me this art in my youth, I never did learn from her.
In 2010, I stumbled across an amazing hat made by April Draven that caught my interest immediately.  I knew I had to learn to make it. Although this was the first pattern I purchased, it was almost a year later before I actually made it.

I sat at the computer for one weekend, glued to YouTube, learning various stitches and crochet techniques.  By Sunday evening, my first item was complete... a purple amugurumi cupcake with pink sprinkles (I would love to link to the pattern I used, but in all honesty, I can't remember where it was from.  There is a multitude of free cupcake patterns online that all look similar... just google it).

So there you have it... it all started with a cupcake... and the rest, is as they say, history.
