Yay for New Neons! (In Hometown USA)
I love that our basic yarn lines such as Homespun,Vanna’s Choice and Hometown USA come in such a wide variety of colors; sometimes it’s hard to select colors for a new project! Before the weather finally warmed up, I knew I wanted to work on a fun, color-pop project as I awaited spring’s arrival, so I […]

For a new crocheter you are good. I have been crocheting most of my life and have never been able to write patterns well. Your patterns are beautiful and the person who sugested you write a pattern book on the dogwood eight point is absolutely right. As you progress with crochet you will get better and better, as good as you are now you'll be an expert soon.

Thanks! I have thought about writing a pattern book, but I am waiting to see how well I make money here on Gather. I can share the patterns for free and still get paid by Gather. I am hoping it will be enough.

Monica your patterns are beautiful I have a hard time because I crochet backwards( I am left handed and had to teach my self to crochet because my mom got to frustrated trying to teach me and the books that she had didn't have much on left handed. But I have overcome that and have the courage to try patterns as I said earlier thay no longer look like greek to me and I even have taught my mom a few things that she never knew! I am currently teaching my 5 year old daughter to crochet I was teaching my 9 year old son but he informed me that he was only learning because he was bored while he was grounded and since he isn't grounded he doesn't want to learn anymore (until next time he gets grounded and believe me he will) but that is OK my 13 year old daughter isn't exactly interested in it but my 13 year old step son who is only with us during the summer asked me to teach him I plan on starting tonight. I hope that by the end of the summer to give him a few of your patterns and a hook and a few skiens to take home with him and maybe by next summer he will have one done. I do hope that he keeps up on it.

I'm a lefty too. Ya know what they say "Leftys are always right." Right brained anyway. I learned by sitting right across from my mother and thats how I teach others who are rightys. And I also get a kick out of teaching my mom new pattern stitches and stuff. I bypassed her in skill by the time I was 11 when she taught me when I was 9.
